Meadows of Dan
Locally known as “The Mountain”, Meadows of Dan is a classic stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Visit Mabry’s Mill, truly an icon, it is one of the most photographed and painted spots in America. Fully operational, this picturesque water mill also features a sawmill, blacksmith, and a woodworking shop where visitors can partake in demonstrations by local artisans. Traditional wares can also be bought in local markets, antique shops, and specialty shops that include a fudge factory, knives, and vintages from local wineries. After a long day of shopping, tap your feet to the inviting rhythm of authentic old-time and bluegrass music with your pet. Meadows of Dan is part of the Crooked Road, Virginia’s music heritage trail which runs through Appalachia and Blue Ridge. A far cry from busy modern life, Meadows of Dan really is “A Simpler Place in Time”.
