A Great Place to Visit

Here's another exciting installment for Fuzzy's #29in29 challenge (pic a day for 29 days).

This building may not appear to be motorcycle-related, but look more closely (or keep reading) and you'll see that it is the the Warrenton Fauquier Visitor Center, which is located at 33 North Calhoun Street right on the edge of Old Town Warrenton.

The interior is packed full of brochures, maps, and other stuff one would expect to find in a visitor center. It is staffed by the friendliest people who are there especially to help you find your way around our town and the lovely surrounding areas.

Not only is it a great place to stop for information, there are also nice, clean restrooms. A couple of benches are scattered around the grounds, and there are some nice shade trees, too. They don't sell refreshments, but "downtown" is just a hop, skip, and a jump away.

Head left out of the parking lot going left on Calhoun, turn right onto Main Street, and this is what you'll see.

Main Street in Warrenton, VA
A block past the church on the left is the Great Harvest Bread Company. They sell all kind of fabulous sweet treats, yummy sandwiches, and a variety of beverages. And there are ALWAYS free samples to be had.

If you're hungry for something a bit more substantial, a few blocks further on you'll find Molly's Irish Pub, which has the best french fries, otherwise known as chips. Hubby loves their burgers. I'm a fish and chips fan myself.

Go another half block or so and you'll come to the Black Bear Bistro.

If you really do decide to come for a visit, let me know. All of these places are mere blocks from my house. I'd love to meet you in person.

Oh, wait. Before you go away, don't forget to check out Fuzzy's blog to see what everyone else was able to capture.

i agree, beautiful pics.

We have a Great Harvest Bread Company here in Corvallis and it is tasty. Not just the free samples of bread, but their marionberry scones are superb.

Mmmm carbs - they're so evil.
