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!
