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 of our creeks inspire you. Whether your calling is an outdoor adventure or simply living in an authentic small town of Damascus has something for you. 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 Springtime with their arrival on the Appalachian Trail. It’s the taste of the signature beer at our local microbrewery. It’s the inspiration for the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area in our backyard. 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. But, most importantly, it’s a place where you can find your own path.
