Off the Beaten (Wards) Road

September 9, 2015

written by Mariah Herring

So we’re a few weeks into the semester and you might be thinking, “There’s got to be more to do in Lynchburg than going to Wards Road and using all my Flames Cash!” Well, I’m going to take you down the road less traveled and give you some exciting alternatives.

Lynchburg is positioned in such a great area of Virginia. You can go two hours north-east and be in Virginia’s state capital Richmond, or travel about three hours north and visit D.C. Also, Lynchburg is a day’s drive away from the Atlantic coast and the beautiful Appalachian Mountains that separate Virginia and West Virginia.

Even if you want to stay a little closer to Lynchburg, there is so much to do, it may take four years of college to experience it all. Here are just a few places to see that will hopefully pique your interest to explore more.

1. Go hike

2. Learn outside of the classroom

3. Eat at restaurants that don’t accept Flames Cash

4. Do something weird

Let’s be honest. Lynchburg isn’t a big, exciting city like you may be used to. You might have to look a little harder, and maybe do some activities that you aren’t used to, in order to see how much of a treasure Lynchburg and this area of Virginia really is. But trust us: it’s definitely worth it.

If you want us to take you somewhere away from Wards Road, check out our calendar!
