Ideas to Get Through

Due to the current concern regarding COVID-19, please contact event venues, businesses and attractions to make sure they are open or event is taking place. We are continually working to keep information updated on our Events Calendar and our Ready When You Are page, with suggestions on things to do during this time of social distancing and travel bans. Thank you and stay healthy!


It’s no secret that Lynchburg is full of history and breathtaking views. But we all know that beauty is more than just skin deep. When you’re here, take in quiet vistas, pop into a coffee shop or two, and discover the real beauty of our city. You’ll quickly realize why so many people have chosen to call Lynchburg “home” and why so many people have such a hard time leaving. This is Lynchburg.
