A Daytrip Away

Want to explore the area beyond Lexington? There's plenty to do. Need a taste of big city life? W&L is 3 hours by interstate to Washington, D.C. Virginia's state capitol, Richmond, is 2 hours away, and both Charlottesville and Roanoke are both a quick 1 hour drive. Looking for a weekend getaway? We're only 4 hours from Virginia Beach. Want a taste of the mountains? There are mountains and caves less than a half hour from campus. Grab a friend with a car, take a picnic basket, and take a day trip.
