Tourism is an important economic driver for counties and towns across the beautiful and historic Rappahannock-Rapidan region. The region's abundant outdoor resources and natural beauty, rolling farmlands, historic towns and sites, attract increasing numbers of visitors to the area each year.

Situated within easy driving distance of Northern Virginia/Washington, DC, and other points north and south, and located in the scenic foothills adjoining the Shenandoah National Park to the west, the region is an attractive weekend get-away and increasingly, extended-stay vacation destination for nearby and distant travelers alike. With exciting new restaurants, places of lodging, and myriad other points of interest to please just about every type of traveler, the Rappahannock-Rapidan region is definitely worth a visit!
