Forbes Center for the Performing Arts
Excellent venue, part of the James Madison University (JMU) campus, showcasing a variety of theatre, concert, and dance performances.
Really wonderful venue for music, theater and dance, attracting top performers. Highly recommended.
“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!”
“Hike to one of the highest points in Virginia. There is great hiking and mountain biking in the area, or just drive to the summit and park to watch the sunset!”
Point of Interest
“One of our favorite play grounds. Our triplets are 8 now and have been enjoying this one for years.”
“BEST Caverns in my opinion (I grew up in Grottoes). Also offering hiking, biking, fishing, picnicing, mini-golf, and a pool (assuming Covid restrictions are lifted). If you are spelunker, check to see of their Fountain Cave Adventure Tours are operating. Grand Caverns was discovered in 1804 and opened for tours in 1806, making Grand Caverns the oldest continually operating show cave in the United States. During the Civil War and the “Valley Campaign” the cave was visited by both Confederate and Union soldiers. There are over 200 verified civil war signatures in the cave. ”
“No visit to Harrisonburg is complete without a stop at Kline's. I grew up enjoying Klines and have continued to over my 50 years. The Custard Style Ice Cream is a local favorite and an institution since 1943. ”
