  • Point of Honor
    A bugle boomed with a brash moan that bordered on shrill, as if the metal it was made of were on the verge of shattering like glass. Its player drew a sideward glance to his wife, whose neck was contorted in the throes of a visceral shriek as she slammed a wooden spoon against the tin washbasin. Darkness was giving way to the orange of morning on June 18, 1864, and the Union's Major General David Hunter was presumably within earshot. The clamor of Lynchburg's citizens was their first defense, making the Confederate forces sound larger and stronger than they actually were. It was a smart move, as Hunter eventually retreated because he believed he was outnumbered. The concise Confederate victory preserved many historical sites in Lynchburg, which had been the United States’ second wealthiest city per capita before the Civil War devastated the economy. Today, the Lynchburg Museum traces the stories of the region, from the cannons and flags of the Civil War to a flight suit worn by hometown astronaut Leland Melvin. More than 20,000 artifacts are housed within the former Lynchburg courthouse, which was built in the Greek Revival style in 1855, replete with architectural details including fluted Doric columns and a pedimented portico inspired by the Parthenon. Less than a mile away, Point of Honor accommodates guests within the re-created plantation kitchen of the restored Federal-period mansion built in 1815 by Dr. George Cabell Sr., friend to both Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson. Guests can peer out at a vista of the James River before exploring the Medicine in Early Virginia exhibit, which highlights tools and methods practiced by Dr. Cabell such as giving patients colds in order to cure their rickets.

  • Fort Hill Bowling Center
    Fort Hill Bowling Center rings the bell between balls and pins as competitors unleash rotating jabs across fully automated lanes. Each day of the week, the facility resonates with the unabashed point scoring of friendly matches or league play. A snack bar keeps fingers properly fueled, and a video jukebox volunteers to cast a tuneful tone across otherwise thunderous frames. After final point totals are tallied, teams can continue to feed their cravings for spherical competition on a pool table, which is far safer than stealing a rottweiler's tennis ball during games of Steal the Rottweiler's Tennis Ball.

  • FunQuest
    When the swirls of smoke clear, the 22nd century appears in all its neon glory. Well, not the actual 22nd century. But FunQuest certainly evokes the future with its multi-level laser tag arena, where players clad in vests dodge incoming beams while firing their own. Colorful obstacles glow in the dark and provide cover throughout the space. The rest of FunQuest contains equally family-friendly attractions, including a hardwood maple skating center. Inside, visitors glide along to upbeat tunes on quad or inline skates, and participate in classic games like the limbo and hokey pokey. Even more games can be found at the arcade. These ones dispense tickets, and once players have collected enough, they can exchange them for prizes, such as an oversized bow for the family giant who had to wait in the parking lot. Finally, for youngsters under the age of 10, the PlayQuest indoor playground has plenty of slides to ride, bouncy floors to traverse, and tubes to crawl through.
