Scenic Drives & Open Road Escapes

There’s no better way to get to know the Greenbrier Valley’s unique history, outdoor wonders and friendly downtowns than through a scenic drive on its backcountry roads. Find your Zen in a cave lined with Himalayan salt. Discover “lions” in downtown Alderson. Descend 120 feet to access a subterranean chamber, and dine in downtown Lewisburg, winner of USAToday’s 10Best Small Town Food Scene. It’s all here!

To maximize your day, we’ve crafted three cruise-worthy drives.

The mountainous Appalachian terrain sets the stage for a scenic and winding route.
