Where in the World Wednesday - Floyd, VA

Today is Where in the World Wednesday over at Jessica's Classy in Philadelphia! Today I'm in Floyd, VA, a quaint little town in southwest Virginia.

It all started out last Memorial Day weekend when Kevin said, "Be ready by 3:30pm on Friday with a bag of casual clothes packed." He wouldn't tell me where we were going for the night. We started up I-77 from Charlotte and I was convinced we were going to Asheville, NC to see the Biltmore. Well, we kept going past I-40 so I knew that was out of the question. We ended up in Floyd, VA after many back roads and no cell phone reception (which made me nervous!).

They have the cutest downtown and on Friday nights everyone comes out and plays their guitar and sings along. It is so neat. We went to dinner at Oddfellas Cantina which I highly recommend if you're in the area.
Afterwards, the big event in town is to go to the Country Store and do/watch some flat-footing. It is their way of dancing to bluegrass music. We had a big time watching them!
And we stayed at this bed and breakfast which I know is a terrible picture but it was my first time every staying in one. Needless to say, I don't expect to be going back to this one EVER. We didn't have our own bathroom - GROSS! I didn't take a shower (since we were only gone one night) and minimized my time in there. Kevin heard about that for awhile but to his credit, he thought we would have our own since the website lead him to believe we did. At least we'll always remember it!
The next day he took us to Chateau Morrisette for my first winery tour. It was so fun! We tasted lots of wine too! Of course we picked up a few bottles and have had them on special occasions.
Hope you've enjoyed a lil small town visit today! Thank you for stopping by!


  1. Oooooh! Chateau Morrisette is one of my favorite VA wineries! I haven't actually visited, but have tried their wines on sevwral occasions, at the wine festivals we go to! I love it! We are thinking og heading down there for a weekend this summer...I think it's about a five hour drive from DC!

    I wouldn't have a clue what clothes to pack if someone told me to "pack casual". What are guys like!!!
