It doesn’t need to be Christmas to show someone special how much they mean to you. We have some wonderful, local, gift-giving ideas for anyone and any occasion. Feel free to check us out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Halifax-County-Virginia-Tourism "like" us and give us your suggestions; your ideas may wind up on the website too.

Here is our list:

There are quite a few antique shops in Halifax County, offering everything from antique machinery to antique hair combs and even books.

SoBo Speedway tickets or, better yet, a season pass would make a great gift for that race fan you love. http://www.southbostonspeedway.com/

You could take (or send) a friend, relative, or that someone special on a delightfully cozy getaway at one of our many Bed & Breakfasts. http://www.innvirginia.com/southern-region-virginia.html

Camp Motorsport at VIRginia International Raceway has fun adventures for kids and grownups. http://www.campmotorsport.com

Yes, we have jewelry stores. Nice ones; always a good idea.

Halifax County has a wide variety of dining establishments; gourmet coffee shops, international cuisine, home-cooking, fine dining. A gift card to any one of them would surely be appreciated. Browse restaurants.

Lots of fresh-air activities can be enjoyed at one of our own TWO state parks; Staunton River Battlefield offers fantastic views, hiking and history http://www.stauntonriverbattlefield.org/.
Go hiking, fishing horseback riding or boating at Staunton River State Park on Virginia’s largest lake – Kerr Lake. http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/sta.shtml
