"A well-liked stop on I-81 in the Shenandoah Valley is Harrisonburg. We cannot help but believe the “Harrisonburg Culinary Trip” is a primary reason for the area’s popularity. A variety of international venues and local favorites, all using fresh local product, are giving Harrisonburg a reputation as a dining destination. The nearby White Oak Lavender Farm is a delight. With a little prodding the owner might just share which local chefs are featuring his lavender."
