Heart of Appalachia » Visitor Centers & Tourist Information

StPaul_SignTo Elevate, or To Relax….that is the question.

The Heart of Appalachia Visitor Center is centrally located in the bustling burg of St. Paul, Virginia, just off of 4th Avenue.  Open 6 days per week, we offer friendly conversation, informative suggestions,  literature on area attractions and points of interest, a clean, spacious bathroom, and free WiFi so you can save your data for when you need it. From time to time, we feature cultural exhibits like the Coal Heritage display pictured here.  Our region is rich with history, exciting adventure, scenic beauty….and we’d love to share it with you. During the summer months, Market Square is abuzz with activity.  The Clinch Valley Farmer’s Market is open for business with fresh in-season produce, local jams and honey, and often live entertainment on Wednesdays from 2-5pm and Saturday from 8am-1pm. The Heart of Appalachia region is just hours away from multiple prominent East Coast cities and municipalities making it the perfect get-away to break free from the stresses of everyday routines. Come out to the country for some elevating…and relaxing.
