Ford Dealer Near Pearisburg, VA

Here at Ramey Ford, we might call Princeton, West Virginia, home, but we love visiting Pearisburg over the border in Virginia. Check out some of our favorite spots, and if you live in town feel free to contact us for your car buying and service needs.

Appalachian Trail

Pearisburg is a great place to visit on its own, but it's also considered an ideal pit stop on the famed Appalachian Trail. When you want a taste of the hiking life, Whitt-Riverbend Park has an easy mile-long jaunt. This walk is paved and has restrooms and other necessities along the way.

If you're more adventurous, the 5.6-mile Angels Rest Overlook Day Hike on the Appalachian Trail might be for you. Reported to be a strenuous climb, you will be rewarded with a picturesque view of Pearisburg, the New River, and the mountains around it. Even if you don't keep going, you can tell everyone you hiked on one of the most famous trails in North America.

History

The city of Pearisburg is perfect for you if you're a history buff. If you stop at the Andrew Johnston House and Museum you can learn more about the property and visit the Giles County Historical Society. The nearby Pearis Cemetery is less than a mile from the Appalachian Trail. Besides being the resting place of the area's past residents, it's also home to one of Virginia's largest Cucumber Magnolia trees. Closer to the heart of Pearisburg is the Giles County Courthouse, a historic building in its own right and a filming location for the film "Wish You Well."

Shopping and eating

When you stop in Pearisburg, there are plenty of shops and places to eat. Pearis Mercantile has gifts and other items and boasts a good hiking section with souvenirs of your visit to the Appalachian Trail. If your stomach is rumbling, La Barranca Mexican Grill and Papa's Pizzeria serve some of the best food around. Time your trip just right to the third Thursday of April-October and you can visit the Pearisburg Community Market, home to vendors with crafts, entertainment, and food.

If you want to drive around Pearisburg but your vehicle isn't quite ready, visit us at Ramey Ford in Princeton, West Virginia, for all your service and buying needs.
