Things to Do in Galax

The Blue Ridge Music Center is a fun museum and very informative about the origins of Bluegrass music. It provides a good introduction to your stay in Galax, a place rich with the traditions of folkloric music. If you're a musician, there's an excellent fiddle shop here too.

For outdoor enthusiasts, the proximity of Grayson and Carroll counties is ideal. In either place, you can rent kayaks, canoes, river tubes and bicycles and head off down the trails or join a guided tour. Check out the beauty of Foster Falls or charter a boat for a fishing trip and see if you can catch some of the region's famous fish: smallmouth, walleye, and musky.

Additionally, during the summer months, go berry picking at local farms or visit Matthews Living History Farm Museum for a look at life on a working farm circa 1900.
