Halifax County Horsing Around Itinerary

Halifax County Horsing Around Itinerary

Day One:

Your first stop - the Halifax County Visitor Center at 1180 Bill Tuck Highway, South Boston, VA 24592 to get your maps, directions, brochures, general information, fishing and/or hunting licenses and trail information.

Once you get to town, stop by O Sole Mio Pizzeria for some hearty Italian subs to enjoy on the spot or wrap up for the trail. Another option: eat-in or take-out BBQ, BLT, or a great Reuben at Smokey River Tavern.

Horse-back riding enthusiasts have several options.

Shangrila Retreat is great for any season and has all-inclusive vacation packages, including fox hunts and horse shows. This equestrian destination is able to provide horses for all levels of riders. Whether for a corporate retreat or a family vacation, Shangrila offers access to trails rich in history and southern hospitality.   http://shangrilaretreat.us/

Falkland Farms Hunting Lodge is a full-service, year-round bed & breakfast which accommodates riders, their horses as well as hunting guests with the comfort of its modern conveniences blended with the antiques and pictures of the past. In between riding the more than 75 miles of breath-taking trails (some along the banks of the Dan River), you will have all of your meals prepared and served in true southern fashion and flair. http://falklandfarms.com/lodge.asp

Take a break from all that fresh air with a stroll through downtown South Boston. Browse the Main Street antiques and delightful sundries in the various shops. If in-town dining strikes your fancy, Café Peroni is a delicious way to wrap up any day, so is Bistro 1888; both on Main Street. Or grab a pick-me-up gourmet coffee and snack at Common Grounds on the way back to your accommodations.

Whether it is fishing, hunting, hiking, camping or horseback riding – or any combination thereof – Halifax County has plenty to offer, with packages and accommodations ranging from the quaint to the luxurious.

Day Two:

Southern Virginia sunrises are especially lovely. It is the perfect time to stretch your legs; one last trot on a trail, mounted or on foot.  Browse through the brochures you collected on Day One at the Visitor Center as you chow down with a hearty breakfast. The Visitor Center is open seven days a week and we would love you to come by, tell us about your stay, and stock up with ideas, souvenirs and more reasons to plan your return visit.
