Suggestion for day trip to Harrisonburg?

My friend and I are thinking about checking out Harrisonburg while our husbands and kids ski nearby. Any recommendations for things to do, places to walk around, good places for lunch? Would appreciate any recommendations for a half-day or so in Harrisonburg!

Not knowing what you'd like to do or see, I suggest you look at this website: http://www.visitharrisonburgva.com/

You can use the drop-down menus to look for boutiques, antique shops, wineries or breweries, parks, tours, etc.

Besides Harrisonburg, I'd also suggest a drive to Dayton to the Dayton Farmers Market http://daytonfarmersmarket.com/

If you like antiques, silver, and/or jewelry, you might also want to go to Rocky's Antique Mall in Weyers Cave (just a short drive outside Harrisonburg on Rt 11 running parallel with I-81). http://rockysgoldandsilver.com/Default.aspx

There is a Quilting Museum in Harrisonburg, Va, no far from the Visitors Center; The Visitors Center has some good information and history of Rt. 11. There are different specialty stores and restaurants surrounding the Courthouse on Rt. 11. If you like shopping, there is Valley Mall, there is a Kohl"s all off or US 33. Check the Things To Do section of Harrisonburg. Hope that you have a great trip.
