53. Virginia’s Adventure Towns: Farmville with Mayor Brian Vincent

“There’s a real excitement about Farmville, a steady progression, where we sit on this cusp of what we all think is an opportunistic moment for Farmville to shine. It’s a great place to live, work, and recreate. That is our new tag for the town and I think it fits us well.” – Mayor Brian Vincent


Welcome to Farmville in the heart of central Virginia. Our guest, Mayor Brian Vincent, takes us on a journey through Farmville, where college town vibe meets small town charm.


From our dynamic conversation, one can’t help but feel the town’s heartbeat through its myriad of outdoor adventures and main street allure.


Together, we’ll roam through Farmville’s extensive outdoor rec offerings, including the “Farmville Five,” a list of must-visit state parks near town, uncovering the hidden treasures that make each park a true gem.


And speaking of gems, weaving through the core of Farmville is High Bridge Trail State Park, a 31-mile-long rails-to-trails park with the crown jewel being the majestic High Bridge, Virginia’s longest recreational bridge. Soaring 125 feet above the Appomattox River, High Bridge Trail is a haven for hikers, cyclists, and history buffs alike.
