About Damascus

Damascus is known best as Trail Town USA, where seven nationally known trails intersect within our borders, but we are so much more! We are a place of stunning natural beauty, where the hills and peaks of the Appalachian Mountains and the murmuring or our creeks inspire you, whether your calling is outdoor adventure, or simply living in an authentic small town. We cherish the lifestyle that this affords us. …. it’s the sounds of families enjoying the Virginia Creeper Trail. …. it’s the creativity found in our downtown artisans. …. it’s the intermingling of cultures as the hikers signal the Spring-time with their arrival on the Appalachian Trail. …. it’s the taste of the signature beer at our local microbrewery. …. it’s the inspiration of the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area in our back yard. …. it’s the conversations, the sharing of stories and shaping of memories, and the smiles of a welcoming community. The Damascus lifestyle is adventurous and creative, yet laid-back and well-paced. It’s a place where you can be super-active, or where you can reconnect with nature, rejuvenate, and find your inner peace. Most importantly, it’s a place where you can find your own path.
