Harrisonburg

Getting Here and Around

Heading south on I-81, Harrisonburg is 18 miles from New Market. Many of the region's Mennonites still drive horse-drawn buggies, so be on the lookout on the secondary roads and highways in this rural region. The city itself, home to James Madison University, combines the energy of the college crowd with its historic past, and the visitor center is located in the heart of town in the historic Hardesty-Higgins House.
