1. Winchester, Virginia
“Spend hours wandering 250-year-old shady brick streets in its 45-block historic district, stopping in at the Old Court House, or checking out Gaunt’s Drug Store where Patsy Cline worked before heading for Nashville fame,” writes AARP. While this city is a great place for anyone who enjoys history, it’s also a great place for anyone who enjoys rural areas. There are plenty of apple and peach orchards and beautiful stone houses from the 18th and 19th centuries.
