Take a Cruise

Costing only $40 per person (This price includes food; it is only $25 if you don’t want to eat!), the cruise takes you on a tour of Smith Mountain Lake and includes visits to an antique carousel, island stops, and views of the osprey nests. Romantic and breathtaking, this beautiful cruise may be the highlight of your vacation!

Dining Out

We all know that the quickest route to any man’s heart is through his stomach and enjoying a delicious Italian meal from Vinny’s Italian Grill & Pizzeria will tell him you know what makes him happy! Food is the international language of love and a huge slice of handmade lasagna proves the love you feel is enormous. Located at 16547 Moneta Road in Moneta, this special restaurant is one of our favorites.

Dockside Parking Available
