Sperryville is a 200-year-old, still small, and still charming village that lies in the Blue Ridge foothills outside the park and serves as a gateway to the park’s central section. It is situated on US 211, which climbs the Blue Ridge for seven wiggly westward miles to connect with the park’s Skyline Drive. The village itself has a friendly and tranquil atmosphere, specialty shops, antique stores (including one with a sign that says antiques are made there daily), B&Bs, and fruit and vegetable stands which, during summer and fall, offer peaches, apples, and other fresh local produce.
