The Star Exponent says it was Culpeper’s “cool and unassuming” nature that drew a rock icon to town last week. And there’s probably something to that.
The town’s Main Street effort, led by Culpeper Renaissance, Inc., has done much to foster the town as an epicurean destination. A vibrant farmer’s market, gourmet food and wine shops, and fine dining options in a comfortable and friendly setting have built the town a reputation that just might have lured Bono of the Irish band U2 for lunch at the Hazel River Inn.
