That is 60 miles (95km) from me, and is a town that I do not willingly visit, as it is most difficult to reach -- apprently, the folks in Lynchburg pissed of Big Harry Byrd in the later 1950's so that he made certain that Lynchburg is hard to reach by normal roads. It is, I believe, the largest city in the US not served by an Interstate. Lynchburg, being the home of several large corporations, is dripping in wealth, so I am not surprised that a Starbucks exists there. But, trust me, I will not be visiting this soon.
