Staunton is becoming known as a "foodie destination" because of the many fine restaurants which have opened in recent years. Staunton is also known as an "artsy community" because of the performing arts (with three theaters in Downtown Staunton) and because of the visual arts (with nine art galleries also located in the Downtown area).
The trolley which goes around downtown is shown below. It only costs 25 cents!

Colleges and universities surround Staunton with James Madison University to the north, University of Virginia to the east, Washington and Lee University as well as Virginia Military Institute to the south, and we have both Mary Baldwin College and Stuart Hall right here in Staunton.
The downtown area of Staunton is filled with over a dozen lively restaurants, 9 art galleries, several specialty shops, antique shops, a free trolley, 2 movie theaters, and the world's only historically-correct re-creation of The Blackfriars' Playhouse, where Shakespeare's plays were performed indoors (see photo below for The Blackfriars' Playhouse). Many of the restaurants are also venues for live entertainment several nights a week.
Staunton has a very vibrant Downtown! There are events in Staunton throughout the entire year which attract guests. Many of our guests have heard of our charming downtown filled with wonderful restaurants. But our single largest draw to the area is the American Shakespeare Center.
Staunton attracts visitors from around the world to view internationally-acclaimed productions of Shakespeare's works as well as other productions at the theater. Visit their website at: www.AmericanShakespeareCenter.com.
