My new home, Lynchburg, may not be the most exciting city in the US, but it does have some great stuff going on. Just this weekend, my husband and I had dinner outside downtown, saw Paula Poundstone perform, met new and interesting people at our favorite bar, found lots of local goods at the farmers market, and went to a garage festival featuring local art/food/music - all within a walkable distance. My husband also climbed a waterfall, but he was on his own there. Next weekend we will hit a two day garlic and wine festival and see a musical cabaret. All in a city that some say is "boring."
I have always found that if you make an effort to investigate, you can discover new and exciting things to do and places to visit in your own community.
So when I came across the website www.lynchvegas.com, I was stoked.The guys at LynchVegas created the site to help spread the word about all great local businesses and events here, and they do it simply as a service to the community.
In an effort to support what they do, I have become a contributor to their site. Check out my articles below, and if have not yet discovered LynchVegas, make sure to poke around on the site. You many discover something new about your own city.
