Hot Springs
Begin your day with a tour of your resort. The Homestead opened ten years before the Declaration of Independence was signed and has hosted presidents, royalty and celebrities over the years. Then, it's your choice! If you are feeling adventurous, grab a mountain bike and hit the local trails. If you're a nature enthusiast go on a hike with a naturalist. If you are looking for a more leisurely choice, take a carriage ride along wooded trails through the tranquil countryside of Virginia. The remainder of the day is at leisure. Perhaps enjoy a round of golf, a luxurious spa treatment, or even falconry! This is also the perfect time to simply relax and take in the beauty of your surroundings.
