Where Ordinary Ends...

Bedford Begins!

BEDFORD COUNTY | JOHN WITCHER PHOTOGRAPHY

In 2020, Bedford was named the Top Small
Adventure Town by readers of Blue Ridge
Outdoors magazine. Bedford County is bordered
by Smith Mountain Lake to the south, and the
Blue Ridge Mountains to the north, making it the
ideal location for outdoor fun! Bedford has more
than 30 miles of biking and hiking trails, and has
quickly become a top destination for disc golf with
four courses in the area and plans to open an
additional championship level course in 2021,
designed by World Disc Golf Champion Paul
McBeth.
Historic Downtown Bedford offers art galleries,
including the Bower Center for the Arts, unique
shops, antiques, and restaurants that are within
easy walking distance from each other in a
charming atmosphere of 19th century buildings.
The Bedford Museum & Genealogical Library,
located beside the County Courthouse,
showcases Bedford's rich history.
A trip to Bedford would not be complete without a
visit to the National D-Day Memorial, a deeply
moving tribute to the American and Allied forces
that fought in the largest amphibious invasion of
all time. The Memorial overlooks the Bedford

BEDFORD COUNTY

community, which suffered the greatest loss per
capita of any city in the United States.
Two-hundred years ago, Thomas Jefferson retired
from public life and began to spend time at his
personal retreat, Poplar Forest, located in the
eastern part of Bedford County. This octagonal
house and surrounding property offers great
insight into the private side of this Founding
Father.
Stop by the Bedford Area Welcome Center for
information on all there is to do in Bedford. The
Center features a gift store, firefighter gallery,
small theater, and free Wi-Fi. Exterior features
include a picnic area, LOVE sign, parking for
motor coaches and campers, and an electric car
charging station.
