Start your day with breakfast at Burke’s Bakery. The Danville institution offers fresh donuts that have caught the eye of national food reviewers, including The New York Times.


Then, it’s off to explore some of Danville’s history at the McDowell House Museum, Apothecary & Garden. The National Historic Landmark is open to guided tours. The house was home to a pioneering surgeon who performed complex procedures before the days of anesthesia and antibiotics.


Do a little shopping and pick up some gifts at Elmwood Inn Fine Teas, where the tea room beckons for a quick cup.


For lunch, visit Grace Cafe, where your dollars go to a good cause. The cafe is a pay-what-you-can eatery, with all proceeds benefiting initiatives to end hunger in the community.


In the afternoon, visit and tour Wilderness Trail Distillery. Ranked a top craft distillery in the nation, you can learn all about the spirit-making process and enjoy a tasting.


Then, visit the Great American Dollhouse Museum to see miniature replicas of structures both real and imagined while learning a bit about the local history.


Dinner can be had at The Bluebird. The favorite restaurant focuses on all things local and you’ll spot menu items sourced from just miles away. Some of the most popular items on the menu include the Bluebird Pear Salad, Somerset Wrap and BBQ Burger.


After dinner, catch a show at Pioneer Playhouse. The oldest outdoor theater in the state, it produces off-Broadway and locally written shows, with performances taking place every night during the summer, Tuesday through Saturday.
