INSPIRATION GUIDE

BIG FUN!
It comes in all fashions.

F

ree-roaming fun is essential to family
entertainment in Lexington, Buena Vista
and Rockbridge County. Here you will
be escorted by camels and llamas to meet water
buffalo and wildebeest, serenaded by budgies and
pheasants on your way to feed a giraffe at eye level,
and encounter tigers, rhinos, cheetahs and even
penguins. Pleasantly, the residents of the 180-acre
Virginia Safari Park aren't the only unexpected
delights awaiting discovery.
The Fields of Gold Farm Trail through the
Shenandoah Valley dishes out animal excitement
alongside animal products. Meet the chickens
that lay the eggs, the cows that give us milk for
cheese and butter, the alpacas that shed their wool
for our warmth, and the bees that work hard to
pollinate the crops and create delicious combs of

sweet honey. Be sure to take home a fresh lavender
sachet to keep the bugs away, and fresh fruits and
vegetables to keep the doctors away.
Sway and sing under the stars when you snag
a ticket for a performance at Lime Kiln Theater,
Virginia's premier outdoor concert venue. Indeed,
it is an actual lime kiln-"The Bowl," we call it-
and it has the coolest vibe and incredible natural
acoustics. Shows for no more than 650 people dot
the calendar each summer with performances by
Grammy-winning artists, local legends and up-andcomers. Concessions are a treat for concert-goers
with delicious options from area restaurateurs,
award-winning wine from Rockbridge Vineyard
and a namesake craft beer-Lime Kiln Pale Ale-
offered by Devils Backbone Brewing Company.
A nostalgic 1950s pastime-also under the
