    Excellent assortment of vehicles, tanks, guns, and uniforms in military history. Kids liked it. Interesting reading the info and usage of the equipment.

    Good bike ride along the Dan River. Good exercise. Pretty extensive trail system. It's paved and the scenery and views are nice.

    When my kid was younger she would have loved it. Definitely great for small kids. For 2 seniors, it was ok. The dome with the Imax movie was amazing.

    To be honest, I don’t really care about Danville history. But, I was passing through and wanted to hit a tourist site. The building was the last capitol of the Confederacy. It was pretty well done. I had no idea it was such a focus of Martin Luther King’s civil rights efforts. Right now they have a special exhibit (unclear when it’s closing with COVID) about a Black opera star who had been born in Danville (and then lived until last decade into her 90s). They have some original China, etc from the family that built the house.

    Came to Ballad Brewing as a cocktail hour for a wedding. The bar service was nice and they were helpful in finding a drink that we both enjoyed.

    Spacious and had a variety of games and seating for everyone. The atmosphere and building were unique and made for a nice experience.

    This memorial is so very clean and well maintained. Such a touching tribute to those that gave all. It is small but very nice place to visit.

    This is strictly a winery/brewery and no food is offered except popcorn to snack on with your drinks. There are 2 counters, one side is for wine tasting, the other is for beer tasting. Did both a wine and beer tasting, and both were really tasty. They offer quite a few of the sour beer flavors that are popular now, and my daughter really enjoyed those. If you want to purchase beer, they pull it straight from the tap for you, seal and label it into a can; it was pretty cool.

    The parking was free. The staff was helpful. The concourse has concessions including food and a team store. The seating falls into 2 categories. One is the reserved section which has plastic theater seats and is roofed and, behind home plate, there are ceiling fans.. The other is general admission which is backless aluminum benches with little protection from the elements. It is a pleasant setting with trees beyond the outfield fences. The sight lines are good. The public address system is adequate as is the scoreboard.

    Lots of merch to choose from. Most items were reasonably priced. Just felt I was "checked on" a few too many times. Maybe it's just me.

    This place has allowed Duke University to host the MBA Rugby World Cup for years. Thank you for making space for this unique event worth all the complexities of such an undertaking. Despite the mud we had a great tournament and we look forward to next year’s event. Thanks Danville!

    There is not much to see but the historical highway marker is well detailed. The tressel where the train derailed is no longer there so there really not much to see. By the way, the mail did not get delivered that day!

    It isn't as elegant or as palatial as the Sutherlin Mansion or the Penn-Wyatt House but the Langhorne House's stature on historic Millionaire's Row in Danville, Virginia, is every bit as grand. Also known as the Gwynn Apartments, the Langhorne House at 117 Broad Street is an historic late 19th century house that was built in 1874 and enlarged in 1878 and moved to the next lot, enlarged again and converted for use as four apartments in 1921. The front facade features a two-tier porch with fluted Doric columns in the Classical Revival style and multiple entries. In 1990, the structure was restored to its appearance in 1922, when it enjoyed its period of significance. At that time, Nancy Langhorne Astor, by then known as Lady Astor and the first woman to sit in the British Parliament, came to Danville to visit her birthplace and promote Anglo-American relations. She made a speech before 5,000 people from the second-story porch of the house. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006. Owned by the Lady Astor Preservation Trust, it is located in the Danville Historic District and is open to the public on Saturday afternoons or by appointment.

    Nestled in the downtown, the Danvillian Gallery gives visitors a supremely exciting, unusual and unexpected experience in an awesome spot!
