Kick off vacation at Bridgewater Plaza, a bustling marina with putt-putt, art galleries, and plenty of restaurants. When you’ve wrapped up a guided fishing tour or are all SUPed out for the day, enjoy dinner aboard the Virginia Dare, a 19th century-style sidewheeler cruise.
When you’re adequately wiped, find salvation at Gills Creek Marina & Lodge. Once you’re feeling restored, give yourself a jolt of energy at Homestead Creamery’s Farm Market or swap sweets for ‘shine at Franklin County Distilleries to sample moonshine in the tasting room. For craft beer fans, a necessary pit-stop is the beer garden or pub at Sunken City Brewery named for the flooding that took place over 50 years go to make Smith Mountain Lake.
