When you’re standing in downtown Culpeper, taking in the historic charm and distant views of the Shenandoah Mountains, you would never guess how close you are to the nation’s capital (60 miles northeast) and to one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious public universities (45 miles southwest). Washington, D.C. and the University of Virginia are just some of the nearby gems that are a short drive from Culpeper, VA. In a nutshell, this is exactly what makes Culpeper such an amazing place. Here you can find complete quiet and solitude on a Sunday and hop on a train to Union Station on Monday.
