Authentic Blue Ridge at the Floyd Country Store

Our favorite feature is the monthly live radio broadcast, featuring the best old-timey music from around the Blue Ridge Mountains. The show is broadcast from inside the store and includes comedy quips, skits, jingles and authentic local bluegrass. Tickets are usually $10 in advance. Each radio show is streamed live and then re-broadcast by nearby local stations.

If you feel like shopping, the Floyd store features a variety of items particular to country living. You'll see plenty of enamelware, books and the occasional set of suspenders for your britches. Music is also available for purchase from local Blue Ridge musicians.

This store is worth the trip and Floyd is worth the stay if you choose to make it a weekend adventure. The Floyd Country Store is located about four hours from downtown, D.C.
