The town of Culpeper lies in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, providing scenic views of the countryside below. The town is filled with everything from lakes, rivers, streams and woodlands to Victorian mansions, 1950s style drive-in diners and state of the art movie theaters.

The town is filled with beautiful parks, farmland and wilderness and also possesses an awe-inspiring historical district and a popular downtown center for public gatherings.
A fine selection of unique shops featuring antiques, arts and crafts, old books and other specialty items can be found along the historic streets making window shopping a pleasurable way to pass the time. Vintage furniture stores abound while coffee shops, wine shops and other various restaurants fill in the gaps. Museums outlining the area's history also make for great afternoon destinations but for those who yearn for more, a short drive in practically any direction will put them in the backyard of history.
Culpeper is recognized as the geographic center to Virginia's top tourist attractions. This town of timeless charm and grace is just 40 minutes north of James Madison?s Montpelier in Orange County, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and James Monroe's Ash Lawn-Highland in Charlottesville. To the east, a slightly longer drive will put you in the heart of many significant Civil War battlefields such as Brandy Station, Cedar Mountain, Wilderness and Fredericksburg. To the north, en route to Washington, D.C., Arlington National Cemetery and Mount Vernon await visitors while countless museums, monuments and landmarks inside Washington make for exhilarating stops.
Fortunately for Culpeper residents, day trips and other out of town adventures are not always necessary due to the variety of community events that populate the area?s festive, year-round social calendar. In the springtime, such events as Culpeper Day, the Firemen's Parade, the Gold Cup Races, the Country Music Festival and the Bull Run Hunt Point-to-Point Horse Races keep everyone smiling. In the summertime, the July 4th Celebration is something to see while the Culpeper Fest, the Antique Car Show, the CMR Farm Fair and the Bluemont Concert Series all make for fun-filled days. Even in months when the weather is colder, events still pack the same punch when locals celebrate the Apple Harvest and Craft & Music Festivals along with the Culpeper Train Days, the Culpeper Air Show and the Montpelier Hunt Races.
