Staunton, Virginia

Charlottesville, Virginia

This my other stop on the trip!! I hated to have only done two on a five day trip, but when there's three of you and you're not
the one driving, you have to do what you can. Anyhow, I was fortunate that we all stopped here in Staunton. We were trying to
get ahold of my cousin who was camping up in the mountains and had a lousy phone connection. Needless to say, we weren't
able to meet with my cousin, but while we waited for about an hour. I grabbed my camera and went exploring!!

It is nice to see a Staunton Thread on here. I really enjoy Virginia towns. Most Virginian towns I travel to are historic, clean, and beautiful. I especially like the I-81 corridor towns along the Blue Ridge.

One of my favorite small cities in Virginia. It's not as lively as Charlottesville, but their downtown has so many great old buildings.
Sounds like you have the same constraints I typically have when travelling. My wife and kids allow me a little bit of time to check out and photo cities and towns, before the complaints start. Your results are very impressive!

Staunton has such great bones. I sort of wish it and Charlottesville were combined into 1 larger city, though. They both have something the other needs.

Anyway, this building is a parking garage. One of the better examples of masking a garage to look like something else that's around.

^ Yep, great bones. Staunton is one of those kind of hidden little urban places that are a pleasant surprise when you visit. Good stuff kc, thanks.

Thanks for the comments so far!! I had absolutely no idea that Staunton had such a great stock of buildings. Not just downtown, but in and around the city. We had to get going about an hour later, but I could have easily stayed there twice as long. I noticed several buildings off in the distance that I would have loved to check out!! Oh well, maybe next time!!
