Roots Recommendations:

Floyd Country Store

The Floyd Country Store is a real country store! You'll find bib overalls and barrels of candy among the items for sale. Better yet, it houses a great café and soda fountain featuring fresh, local, delicious meals. The Country Store is probably most famous for its Friday Night Jamborees, featuring old-time and bluegrass music and dancing!

Buffalo Mountain

Featuring a short, yet steep hike to a treeless summit, Buffalo Mountain is worth the effort for the amazing views. It is a nature preserve home to many protected species, so attendance is limited, meaning you can enjoy the experience without the crowds. On your way back into town, you can swing by Buffalo Mountain Ziplines for another kind of adventure!

Floyd County has over 40 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway Scenic Drive running through it! This stretch includes Mabry Mill (historic mill that is also the most photographed site on the parkway) and Rocky Knob recreation area featuring camping, cabins, hiking, and incredible views.
