Cattle grazing near Lexington, Virginia

Set midway between Roanoke and Charlottesville, Virginia, scenic Lexington “delights visitors with cool shops and boutiques, a walkable downtown … restaurants that use locally sourced ingredients, and a wealth of Southern history,” says AARP. Trawl the Virginia Military Institute Museum and its 15,000 artifacts, browse the 100-plus vendors at The Antique Mall and then chow down at Blue Sky Bakery. And when you’re ready to move on, head out on the nearby world-famous Blue Ridge Parkway, which runs for 469 scenic miles through Virginia and North Carolina.
