    Do you recognize one of the oldest tourist destinations in the US? This beauty has been included on several "Seven Natural Wonders of the World" lists, was surveyed by George Washington in 1750 and was once owned by Thomas Jefferson as a personal retreat. While you're visiting don't forget to swing by the legendary Foamhenge, explore the Natural Bridge Caverns and get your photo taken with a baby tiger at the Natural Bridge Zoo.

    Have You Discovered Your Local Crush?

    by Casey | Posted on September 15th, 2010

    October is Virginia Wine Month and there’s no time like the present to discover your local crush.

    Wine trails aplenty usher vino aficionados through the mountains and heart of Virginia, making it easy to taste new releases and fall favorites at several wineries each day of your getaway.

    When traveling through Northern Virginia, swing through Stafford where you can pair two wineries with awesome George Washington history at his boyhood home – Ferry Farm.  Traveling with children? Family fun is easily tied in! More Details

    Couples who wish to cram in as much wine experience as possible will love spending a few days in Loudoun: DC’s Wine Country®, home to almost 30 wineries (not to mention the boutique shopping and delicious dishes!).

    Virginia’s Eastern Shore is a magical place for romance. It can’t be helped with the amazing wildlife watching, sunrises and sunsets (depending on which side of the Shore you’re on), and a quaint vineyard en route. Learn More

    The Blue Ridge Mountains are perfect for fall and Botetourt County’s three wineries welcome you to share in their newest releases. Enjoy a new perspective of the mountain foliage when you pair your wine hopping with James River paddling.

    Regardless of where you choose to spend a few days in Virginia, you’re sure to sample something that will become your local crush. Cheers!
