Wytheville was of strategic importance during the Civil War, enduring attacks in 1863 (Toland’s Raid) and 1865 (Stoneman’s 1865 Raid).

“On the streets of Wytheville, you half expect to see a Ford Galaxie 500 with Andy Griffith at the wheel,proffering a friendly wave and inviting you for an ice cream and to go fishing with Opie. But the shops in Wytheville are more cosmopolitan than in Mayberry, and the lodging and dinning much more contemporary. And beautiful natural sights throughout Wythe County offer adventures other than merely casting a line over the water.”

“The views from the top of the Big Walker Lookout tower were amazing, I could have stayed and looked out all day! After climbing the tower I explored the tiny country store, which was full of unique items and souvenirs. Definitely a place I would recommend if you are in the area!” – Trip Advisor traveler review (5 stars) (Best of the BRPW)

“My husband and I were on a spur-of-the-moment week-end getaway and were simply wandering the backroads of southwest Virginia. We avoided the interstates by taking Hwy. 21. On a map that we had picked up in Wytheville, VA, we saw the ad for a lavender, herb farm with a butterfly house. We thought we would stop by for a quick look and ended up staying 1 hour and 45 minutes! Very educational tour (all ages) of the butterfly house, lovely gardens and great Southern hospitality was extended by the owners.” -Trip Advisor traveler review (5 Stars) Blue Ridge Parkway Guide
