Across Appalachia

Southwest Virginia is for (Outdoor) Lovers

By Amber Ellis

On Sept. 13-14 in Abingdon, Va., the Appalachian Spring Initiative will host a regional expo to highlight southwest Virginia’s outdoor recreational opportunities.

The initiative, which focuses on community development, has identified eight attractions as pillars of ecotourism in southwestern Virginia, including the New River, High Knob Recreation Area and the Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail.

The two-day expo in September centers on these “anchors,” with the first day aiming to connect people with outdoor activities through area businesses and the second day devoted to off-site exploring and guided activities. The expo also offers interactive demos, educational information, live music and local beer. Cost varies based on activity. Visit: swvaoutdoorexpo.com.
