Edith J. Carrier Arboretum
Absolutely wonderful walk through nature with plants/flowers labeled for your edification and sweet pond.
A lovely year-round walking experience on the James Madison University campus. Amus lots of easy walking trails, there's tiny indoor visitor center. On a beautiful spring or fall day, parking can be a challenge in one of three lots, all off of University Drive.
HARRISONBURG - near JMU. A lovely manicured park with a duck pond, walking trails and flowers blooming until frost! Beautiful spot for a picnic.
“Quaint venue for showings of classic films, live performances, and arts events (it's inside a tiny "mall," at the end of the long, wide corridor (with cool, old-fashioned shoeshine stand chairs). Right next to the Capital Ale House -- so make dinner and a movie plans!”
“Our favorite local coffee spot in downtown Harrisonburg! Awesome coffee drinks, delicious baked goods, and great lunch/brunch items”
“This place has a terrific all you can eat lunch buffet that is pretty cheap ($10.50). It is located right on Court Square in the heart of downtown. You can park next door in the metered lot, or in the free municipal parking around the corner on W. Bruce Street (access from S. Liberty Street ).”
