Scenic overlooks and babbling brooks are the major tourist draw to rural Wise County, Virginia. With more than 35,000 acres of nearby Jefferson National Forest that you can explore on foot, on a bike, or in a canoe, Wise is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. Families and couples can also enjoy the town’s cultural and historical attractions.
The Clapboard House: The Clapboard House, one of the oldest buildings in town, may look like a cozy Appalachian home on the inside, but in fact everything is for sale—even the furniture. You can take home a brand name sofa, or hand-forged wrought iron furniture as a souvenir you’ll use every day. For a memento that fits in your carry-on, though, browse through the Appalachian Showcase, which features crafts, books, art, and more created by locals. As you walk through the organized chaos of the displays, you’ll find everything from bark baskets and coal jewelry to regional music, so be sure to keep your eyes open for that special keepsake.
