Outside the Gates

Located midway between Bristol and Abingdon, The Virginian is just minutes away from a myriad of cultural and recreational activities.

The Great Depression brought to Abingdon one of its greatest treasures: the Barter Theatre. Abingdon is quaint and historic, from the cute Starving Artist Café to the elegant Martha Washington Inn.

Bristol is the historic Birthplace of Country Music, and is also home to theworld-renowned NASCAR track, Bristol Motor Speedway. The Virginia - Tennesseestate line runs down the middle of downtown Bristol, "A Good Place to Live" as the sign that arches State Street proclaims.
