Proximity

Rockingham County is located in the heart of the historic and scenic Shenandoah Valley in west central Virginia. The Allegheny Mountains form the region's border to the west, and the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains borders the east.

Three major interstates, I-81, I-66, and I-64 create a strategic transportation network that provides one-day access to two-thirds of the U.S. population, with Washington, D.C., the nation's capital, just 125 miles to the northeast, and Richmond, the capital of Virginia, just 131 miles southeast.
