Stunning views and several paths to walk on. There is also a visitor center that I did not visit today, but have in the past. The homestead is also worth seeing but have toured in the past so today was just walking through the park.

Super place to visit if you like history. New Market is a very interesting place to spend at least one day understanding the battle and the VMI cadets roll they played.

Cool movie and museum focused on the battle of New Market with a really awesome focus on the VMI contribution to the battle. Really worth the entrance fee.
