Some of our attractions may just bring out the kid in everyone.
Enjoy a day in the country as you pick fruit from the trees, take a scenic wagon ride, or let the kids play on the playground at one of our local farm markets.
After a day picking apples, pack a picnic lunch for the park, relax at one of our swimming pools, ride a paddle boat, or try hiking, fishing, or horseback riding.
The Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival is Winchester’s signature event! Each year, hundreds of thousands of people join together to celebrate the arrival of the apple blossoms and adorn the city in pink and green. Since its beginnings in 1924, the festival has grown over the years to a ten-day celebration with over 30 events, including two huge parades, a carnival, dances, concerts, a 10K race, wine festival, golf tournament, and so much more!

What is geocaching? Geocaching is an outdoor
recreational activity that uses GPS devices to locate hidden containers. Some caches even require the geocacher to solve puzzles. Geocaching is a game that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, families, clubs or groups. The first geocache was hidden in 2000, in the state of Oregon. The game became increasingly popular after the improved accuracy of GPS technology. Now there are millions of geocaches hidden all over the world! Visit www.geocaching.com to learn more about geocaching.
