Our Favorite Ideas for Weekend Getaways in Virginia for Couples

Tours Wineries

It may surprise first-time visitors to know that Virginia has a fantastic wine culture. It’s true! From the Bedford Wine Trail, which features six incredible wineries near the lake, to the Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival, there are so many ways to experience wineries near Smith Mountain Lake. One of our favorites is taking a tour and enjoying a tasting at the winery. Hickory Hill Winery has a great tasting room located in a refurbished barn. Tours at this winery are not scheduled, so visitors are encouraged to just ask the staff for a look around. Ramulose Ridge Vineyards also offers on-site tastings, but with a twist. Each of their wines has been paired with a cigar from Panacea. There is a selection available to purchase in their tasting room.

Visit Roanoke

The nearby town of Roanoke features plenty of great ways to spend time with your loved one. The Taubman Museum of Art is a fantastic attraction and one of the best free things to do in Roanoke.
