Virginia is home to many cities and rural towns, but none are quite like the little community of Forest, Virginia, where the Old South meets the modern era. Sitting quaintly in the shadow of the pawpular Lynchburg, Forest is a strikingly charming town where you and Fido can escape to for a weekend. Four friendly and well-trained veterinarians are available in Forest, so no need to wag outside the town to care for your pup.

Virginia is speckled with a pawful of historical attractions and national heritages. One of which sits right here in Forest, VA! Come learn about the life of Thomas Jefferson with your pup on the grounds of the Thomas Jefferson Poplar Forest, now a pawpular National Historical Landmark. Fido must be leashed at all times to explore the grounds, but is not allowed in any of the historical buildings. If you'd like to do the tour, but not leave Fido at home, there are temporary kennels onsite available for your pup.

Head to the center of Forest when you and your pup's tummies begin to growl. La Carreta is a pup-friendly Mexican style eatery where authentic dishes like goritas, taquitos, fajitas, and more, are in paw's reach. Fido is more than welcome to join in on the fun while you eat outside.

Forest is waiting for you and Fido's visit! Come discover this quaint little town and immerse yourself in times past.

    #2 Jefferson Villas

    When in Forest, you and your pup will not want to miss out on a trip to the Jefferson Villas neighborhood for one main reason: the Apocalypse Ale Works Brewery! Come and sample up to ten pawsome craft beers made in-house. Enjoy a sampler or a local specialty with Fido outside at Apocalypse Ale's spacious pup-friendly backyard. This local gem is pawpularly known for being the very first brewery to come to Forest since Thomas Jefferson himself first brewed at his private estate of Poplar Forest during the 1800's. A'paw'calyspe Ale is both family and dog-friendly, so bring everyone for a barkin' good time!

    #5 Sheffield

    After a long day of exploring with Fido, wag to the Sheffield neighborhood in Lynchburg to rest your paws. The Holiday Inn Express Lynchburg is conveniently located just 12 miles from the T.J. Poplar Forest and welcomes your four-legged friend of any size for an extra moderate fee per stay. Pups love it here, and owners rave about the friendly staff.

Both offer clean, pup-friendly rooms at an affordable rate but have weight restrictions for doggoes over 40 lbs. Call ahead to reserve your pup-friendly room today!
