    Have you hiked Roaring Run Trail in Eagle Rock, #VA? An excellent family #hike, the trail passes rock walls, cascading water, five foot bridges and even a natural water slide before ending at Roaring Run Falls. At the head of the trail is Roaring Run Furnace, ruins of a 19th century furnace operation. Roaring Run #Creek is also known for trout fishing. #VAOutdoors #waterfall #loveva #repost #roaringrun #virginia #perspective #photooftheday Kudos to @spezzaroo for the beautiful photo!

  • Tailgating with Virginia is for Lovers®

    by Casey | Posted on August 5th, 2010

    Okay, okay, it’s a little early, but I just can’t stand the wait any longer! It’s almost FOOTBALL season!!

    Liberty University - Williams Stadium

    If you’re ready for Saturday pigskin match-ups like I am, I’ve got the scoop on great college football in Virginia to share with you, not to mention some Virginia is for Lovers® items to spruce up your tailgating.

    From the Virginia Tech Hokies and the UVA Cavaliers, two of the ACC’s powerhouses, to the Liberty Flames, the Big South Conference champions three years’ running, there’s plenty of great football action to witness in Virginia this fall.

    Tune in to see if the Hampden-Sydney Tigers can seal the deal with another perfect season, and if a slew of new coaches will bring the heat to teams like the Richmond Spiders, UVA, and the Washington and Lee Generals

    Need more football? See additional schedules here. Now on to the tailgatin’!
