    What a beautiful memorial. The memorial painted a great picture from that time. The artwork (statues) were amazing. The history and story behind the statues was fascinating. Would visit here again.

    Taking this tour will be with me for the rest of my life. The freedom we have is because of men like the Bedford Boys. Because of there sacrifice and the sacrifice of thousands like them we have the freedom we have. Anyone in the Bedford VA stop and take the tour you will never forget it!

    They also have a country store with candy, jams, and other items. I bought some blueberry preserves and it was quite tasty. We bought a few apples and they were very good. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

    Johnsons orchard also has Peaks of Otter winery. We attend their annual wine festival at the orchard. It is held in July and it is usually hot but the wine is good and the music is great. They offer free wet cold towels to cool you off.
    a great experience and will keep coming back

    This is a family owned winery and they are super friendly and have really good wines. We plan to get married here next year. The scenery is wonderful. They have animals to pet and a cool farmhouse to rent for overnights.

    We love visiting Falling Creek Park. It is perfect for both kids and adults. Kids get their exercise on the awesome play gym and adults as they walk the paved trail have workout stations throughout the walk that can be used to help keep you fit. There is also great picnic shelters and big open fields to spread out a blanket on the ground. They even have bike trails and disk golf. They really thought this park through. So much to do for all ages. We love going here every opportunity we can.

    There are number of really cute shops on the two main streets in the town. Two large and interesting antique shops, a number of good restaurants, and the Bedford Boys Tribute Center. The county seat is in the town also. The Liberty Station Restaurant is a favorite located about 2 blocks from the center of town.

    We were looking for things to see in Bedford and I saw this mentioned on Trip Advisor. So glad we went. We all enjoyed the visit. We hiked a bit but it was a very hot day. We visited the farmhouse property. The view and gardens were beautiful!! I love boxwoods and there were plenty to see. We liked seeing the older ash tree. It is off the beaten path, worth it for us.

    Now at a larger location on Bedford's main street, Bridge Street, adjacent to the previous location. Welcoming. Multiple stories with a large number of holiday decorations during our December visit.

    We stopped in on our way home from vacation. We were here years ago but wanted to see if there were any new items we may be interested in. We didn't find anything but glad we stopped in, Fairly large and well organized store but we found the prices a little high on the items we looked at. Lots of different items to look at. We would suggest stopping in if you are in the area and form your own opinion. The guy behind the desk was very friendly and was willing to answer any questions we had.

    We were given a tour today by the Facility Director, Irene. She shared a massive amount of detail with us concerning the family and the architecture. Kept us quite interested with each room. Worth the visit!!

    This is a nice market for a small town. I can't go on Fridays, but I try to get to a Saturday at least once per season. Good variety of products at reasonable prices. There's also usually a food truck, which is convenient. Parking is easy, which for some farmers markets is rough.
