Our wanderlust is limited only by our free time and budget. Because of this we sometimes struggle to find new destinations to explore. We had been planning a trip to the beach in October, however Hurricane Matthew wreaked havoc on North Carolina. Our next option was to go to the mountains. High prices and limited room availability squashed that idea. Eventually we decided on a trip to South Boston Virginia. We have traveled through this small town before, but had yet to explore it.
Berry Hill Resort and Conference Center
We chose to stay at the Berry Hill Resort, just outside of South Boston. This 650 acre resort dates back to the 1700’s. Upon arrival we checked in at the front desk and made our way to the room we had reserved.
After we got settled into our room, we made our way to a local Mexican restaurant for dinner. We’ve eaten at this spot in the past and knew the food and service were both very good.
If you travel to South Boston, I highly recommend Mexico Viejo! After returning to the resort, we began to explore Berry Hill.
As darkness fell we made our way back to our room. We relaxed the rest of the evening watching some television and eventually falling asleep.
After our morning hike we had our morning coffee and some breakfast. Ashley enjoys doing research prior to our trips. She had picked out several places around South Boston for us to visit. We started off with a visit to their local museum.

Staunton River Battlefield State Park
High Bridge Trail State Park
After we visited High Bridge Trail State Park, we found a nearby restaurant and had dinner. Neither of us felt like making the 200 mile trip home, so we ended up staying another night in South Boston Virginia.
In conclusion, our trip to South Boston Virginia was awesome! There are lots of great places to explore in Virginia, and we certainly aren’t done!
