With a rich history and a modern charm, Culpeper County sits just an hour from our nation's capital. Also known as "horse country", Culpeper is home to equestrian land, camps, riding lessons, and shows. Popular for Horse Shows in The Sun (HITS), this six week horse show circuit is approaching its 20 year anniversary. Farms cover the area and sustain farmers markets and personally owned shops. The fun doesn't stop there. Bull Run Hunt is another popular attraction as it hosts "the most fun, the most friendly, and the most hunting hunt in Virginia!"
Although Culpeper County offers an abundance of outdoor activities and adventures, the county has a wealth of local boutiques. Culpeper is considered "today's hottest business location where technology, talent, and quality of life converge". Many 'mom and pop' shops line the streets of this county and treasure items that are handmade in the USA. Culpeper serves as a great place for work, play and home.
