White Rocks Falls are very small volume, but the scenery is so peaceful. You are right next to the road practically, but you can't hear any car noise because of the density of the trees. It is an easy hike (less than 2 miles roundtrip) with some elevation.The trail is very well marked with yellow marks on trees. Do not turn right when given the...more
St. Mary's Waterfall is in St. Mary's Wilderness, part of George Washington National Forest. This hike is about 4 1/2 miles roundtrip. We visited the day after a hurricane had hit the area, and it made it a bit more challenging. The trail was full of fallen trees and rocks.There are several river crossings on this trail. Some are an easy hop on...more
After seeing Crabtree Falls, some of the other, smaller waterfalls may seem underwhelming. You may want to plan your visit so that you see Crabtree Falls last.

Clearwater's looks fairly average outside but has a higher class decor on the inside. This is the type of place that would be at home in San Francisco or New York. The menu is varied and tends toward New Orleans style cuisine. The food was great and well presented. The service, my waitress was Kara, was very good. This place is well worth the visit. Hours are Monday - Thursday: 11:00am to 10:00pm; Friday - Saturday: 11:00am to 11:00pm; and Sunday: 11:00am to 9:00pm.
Favorite Dish: The Shrimp Etouffe was very tasty and authentic.
The Waynesboro Outlet Village on Shenandoah Village Drive is not worth your while to visit. The Outlet Village has altogether maybe four stores in it, and these stores' days may be numbered as well. Additionally, parking is horrible, as is navigation inside the Outlet Village.
One of Custer's greatest victories was the Civil War battle of Waynesboro, described in the link below.
I grew up in Waynesboro but I never heard anything about this battle and I do not know of any historic markers about it.
