DINING & LODGING
Where to Eat
Hailed as "one of the country's best-kept foodie secrets" (Baltimore Magazine) and featured in Vogue Magazine, Staunton features a number of award-winning places to eat. Out of dozens, we have listed here a few that are located in the historic downtown, within an easy walk from all SMF events.
Where to Stay
With its signature architecture and vibrant, compact downtown, Staunton, Virginia offers many wonderful options for lodging during your visit. And situated at the crossroads of Interstates 81 and 64, Staunton also has numerous chain hotels within a few minutes drive of downtown. We recommend a more personal experience by staying in the heart of downtown, where everything (including all Festival concerts) are a short walk away. Early planning is encouraged as lodging downtown books fast.
