Go Outside and Play in Rockingham County, Va.

Year-round attractions truly make Rockingham County a four season destination. Ski the slopes in the winter, fly fish cool mountain waters in the spring, listen to live music in the summer, and hike among the changing leaves in the fall. The rolling farmland connects you to wineries, apple orchards, small towns, rural communities, and local favorites that’ll keep you coming back for more.
