For my birthday this year, we took an overnight trip to Danville, VA. Danville is a small town along the Dan River. We enjoyed a view of the river and a short walk along the river. We did a little shopping in a modern, commercial area as well as enjoyed downtown Danville, particularly the mural and site of the Wreck of the Old '97.
Danville is very historical. When Richmond, the Capital of the Confederate States, fell during the Civil War, President Davis spent a week in Danville at the home of a local merchant. Today, the home is a museum and art gallery. Danville is also home to a National Cemetery.
