    #Downtown #Staunton is filled with amazing #architecture including the Romanesque-Revival Marquis Building seen here. It was designed by T.J. Collins in 1895 (he designed nearly 200 buildings throughout the city in various styles during the #Victorian Era). Note the large umbrella fixed to the corner of the turret! #loveva #virginia #vatravel #mainstreet #vais4lovers #oldschoolva

    Sip away the end of #summer at North Gate #Vineyard in Pucellville before the crush begins! They have live music every Friday evening (TGIF: Thank Grape It's Friday), making it an ideal time to stop by for a taste. Next month is #Virginia #Wine Month, when a lot of vineyards across the state will be harvesting their #grapes. Photo props to @emkittie! #VAwine #howisummer #winetime Tag your #VA photos with #LoveVA for a chance to get featured here.
    Here's a beautiful shot of @castlehillcider in Keswick posted by @merchcolony_cville. This is currently the only #cidery in the world to be fermenting and aging in buried terra cotta amphorae called kvevri. Plan a trip to try some of the world's finest right here in #Virginia. #loveva #vacider #drinklocal #cville #vatravel #castlehillcider #vaweddings

    Heart-pounding spectacle … dazzling ballet … great concerts by famed pop, jazz, bluegrass, world, and classical artists … it’s all waiting for you at the 14th Annual Virginia Arts Festival, April 15 – May 30, 2010. For more than a decade, this acclaimed Festival has brought the world’s great artists to performance venues throughout the Hampton Roads area, making this beautiful region – already beloved for its white sand beaches, pristine waterways, wildlife, and historical attractions that date back to the earliest days of our country – a cultural destination for travelers from around the world.

    The central mid-Atlantic location makes this region an ideal location for a 48-hour or longer getaway!

    The big event is the Virginia International Tattoo. Presented in the grand tradition of the world’s oldest tattoos, this Tattoo is an all-American Show of patriotism and pride – one international sensation. The dynamic cast of more than 800 hails from several countries. The Tattoo has something for everyone. Count on marching bands like the Republic of Korea Traditional Army Band, choirs like the African Children’s Choir, drama like that of of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, and as always, surprise guests!

    Plan a weekend to soak in the talent of the Virginia Arts Festival.
