Celebrate in the Home of #3

Our third president was known for his expansive library, his authorship of the Declaration of Independence, and his beautiful Poplar Forest retreat located just a short drive from your Smith Mountain Lake escape, making it the natural spot to celebrate his work! The party lasts all day at Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest, starting at 10 AM, and offering a colonial-style celebration is sure to fascinate and entertain. Also offering children’s activities, games, and pony rides, the party reaches new heights of wonder with a reading of the Declaration of Independence. Costing $10 for adults and nothing for kids 15 and under, you may not believe how much fun you can have learning about history until you experience it yourself!

All the Oohs and Ahhs

Can it really be called Independence Day without fireworks? Unfortunately, the last couple of years answered that question but this year the fun is back with a beautiful fireworks display offered at Mitchell’s Point Marina in Huddleston on July 3rd. The party lasts from 7 PM until 11 PM and promises to offer food, drink, and all the oohs and ahhs you have missed over the last couple of years. The fireworks will be visible from Smith Mountain Lake, so for a unique experience, park your boat in the water and watch the show from the most peaceful body of water in the state!
