About the neighbourhood
The Galax area is blessed with various festivals & outdoor recreation. We experience the beauty of all four seasons with a grand show in autumn of scarlet, orange & gold leaves then in winter when the refreshing mountain snows blanket the countryside. The Spring & Summer’s are bursting with gorgeous green foliage, Dogwoods, Mountain Laurels & colorful blooming flowers.

They also host many Saturday concerts and community plays. While downtown, visit the Chest...
