Five must-do wintery things in Charlottesville
Winter Wanderland at Boar’s Head Resort
Veritas Illuminated in Afton
Speaking of lights, Veritas Illuminated is a ¼ mile-walking path that begins at the pergola near the entrance of the Tasting Room. Winding through the woods and among the vines, the lighted path is an immersive experience from the tops of the towering trees to the forest floor under your feet. Venture indoors for glasses of wine and mugs of hot cocoa next to the roaring fire. A special After Hours menu featuring s’mores, warming soup, and comfort foods will be available for purchase.
The event runs through Jan 8 and tickets can be purchased here.
The Plunge at Wintergreen Resort
The Plunge is Virginia’s largest tubing park. Imagine being on top of a ten-story building and looking out over a hill that’s longer than three football fields. Now imagine going downhill on a tube at speeds reaching 30 mph. That’s The Plunge!
More information about availability and age/height restrictions can be found on their website.
The Christmas Carol Experience at Lovingston Winery
Audience members will be transported back in time as an age-old Christmas tale is brought back to life by Ebenezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come, all set in their charming 1906 farmhouse and barn, enveloped in centuries-old oak trees atop Josie’s Knoll.
The event runs Dec 8-30 and you can purchase tickets here.
The Christmas Carol Experience at American Shakespeare Center
American Shakespeare Center’s beloved holiday tradition A Christmas Carol returns to the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton December 1-30. Every performance begins with a rousing singalong of holiday tunes led by the cast, and then immerses the audience in Charles Dickens’ tale of transformation and joy, as the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future take miserly Ebenezer Scrooge on the ride of his miserable, money-grubbing life.
