A Fall Day in the Greenbrier Valley

Whether you are on the road now or dreaming of an #AlmostHeaven escape, take a trip with us through our ideal day in the Greenbrier Valley.

Morning munchies

A full day of adventuring requires a proper fueling up. With filling burritos and cozy coffee, The Wild Bean is the perfect spot to start your day. Lovers of fall flavors will adore the Sugar Maple Latte, made with real maple syrup.

Trail searching

There is no better way to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather than to hit the trails. The Greenbrier River Trail is a fan favorite among bikers! Join Greenbier Outfitters on a guided biking tour to take in gorgeous fall foliage. Don’t need a guide? You can also rent a bike and take on the trails yourself from Greenbier Outfitters.

Go spelunking

As the day rolls on, find your way to the Lost World Caverns for some underground fun. The half-mile self-guided tour of this rocky cavern is the perfect way to spend an afternoon. If you just can’t get enough of the stalactites and stalagmites, Lost World Caverns also offers longer guided expeditions.

Traveler Tip: Be sure to say hello to the friendly animals out-front. You might just catch a glimpse of something a little more exotic than a horse among the pen.

Lunch of champions

After all of that exploring, you are sure to be hungry! Find a delicious and comforting meal at Food and Friends in downtown Lewisburg. Known for their steaks and seafood, this spot also sports an appealing lunch menu. Paired with the chilly fall weather, the Tomato Basil Grilled Cheese is the perfect way to cozy up.

Mid-day pick-me-up

The Salt Cave and Spa is the perfect place to rejuvenate after a long day of adventure. Experience the wonder of the glowing salt cave in a halotherapy session or detoxify with a calming mud wrap. While you are enjoying beautiful White Sulphur Springs, check out all that Main Street has to offer to work up an appetite for dinner.

Dinner goals

Finish up your day with the perfect meal at Del Sol Cantina and Grill. Serving traditional cantina cuisine with an added flair, there is something for everyone at Del Sol. Whether you are looking for something light and fresh or a dish that is warm and savory, you will not be disappointed.

Traveler Tip: Be sure to ask your waiter about the daily special! These limited availability dishes are often unbeatable, especially in the fall season.

Rest your head
