Looking for an activity that doesn’t involve a screen? Travel back in time at The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library & Museum, located in the heart of Staunton. Visitors can stroll through historic gardens, read about Wilson’s family treasures, and experience a replica of a World War I trench. Born in 1856 in Staunton, President Woodrow Wilson led the country through World War I, Prohibition, and the women’s suffrage movement. The museum includes a 1923 radio receiver and a presidential favorite—a 1919 Pierce-Arrow Limousine, which still runs to this day. WoodrowWilson.org
