Our walkable, bikeable community offers much to explore, from nearly 4o restaurants in Virginia's first culinary district to museums to local history. Our quality of life is highly sought after -- downtown Harrisonburg is a livable, vibrant community where people are passionate about the Shenandoah Valley and creating a place that we love together. Downtown is where you can start your business, walk to work, meet your neighbors, raise your family, enjoy the mountains, get involved, and shop local.

While their shop enables artists to create beautiful masterpieces, Scott and Valerie, owners of Larkin Arts, share with us their fateful love story. You may see it as a masterpiece as well.
