Lynchburg is a remarkable place to call home and we’re proud to live and work in this area! Home to Lynchburg College and Liberty University, great dining, and more, Lynchburg has so much to offer. We asked Walden Pond team members and residents what they consider some of the best perks of living in the area and here are their top responses:
Great Outdoors: Surrounded by amazing scenery, hiking, mountains, and trails, it’s no surprise there are so many ways to enjoy the outdoors in Lynchburg! Flowing through the city, the James River provides scenic views that can be enjoyed from the Lower Bluffwalk. You can also bike, hike, or walk the Riverwalk Trail. The Blue Ridge Mountains can be easily seen from Lynchburg and are only a short drive away!
Local History: Lynchburg is bursting with history wherever you go! The city was an important trading center which included trade by ferry and countless warehouses, which can still be seen today. Just minutes from downtown Lynchburg is Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest! The octagonal home in a beautiful secluded setting is truly unique and serves as a National Historic Landmark. We also recommend visiting the Lynchburg Museum at the Old Court House and Monument Terrace.
Downtown Fun: There’s no better way to experience the history and vibrancy of the city then downtown Lynchburg! If you’re looking to grab a bite to eat with friends, check out the locally owned coffee shops and eateries. This is also where you’ll find charming storefronts, the Academy Center for the Arts, and live music performances. There’s something for everyone!
We love the charming and beautiful atmosphere of Lynchburg and hope you do too, whether you already live here or are considering a move. If you’re looking for a luxury apartment to call home, make sure learn more about our available spacious floorplans on the Walden Pond website!
