“Looking for a quaint, historical treat? Try Smithfiled, Virginia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Located along the Pagan River, Smithfield, Virginia is a quaint river-port town rich in Hams, History and Hospitality. Stepping on to Main Street in their Historic District is like stepping into a time long ago. Antique shops, Quaint restaurants, a great museum and a Saturday Farmer's market through December all within an easy walk. Plan to spend a Day or book a room at one of the 2 bed and breakfasts or local motels. You won't be sorry you took the time to visit.

“Friendly and Knowledgeable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

The staff member was friendly and was proud of their town. She shared a great deal of information about Smithfield. There were plenty of printed materials on hand. There were even materials geared towards kids, including a scavenger hunt (with a prize at the end) which made the visit fun for the 7yo.
