    @rbuck65 recently hiked Bearfence #Mountain off of #SkylineDrive, and this was the reward! This #hike is fairly short with a nice payoff. The trail head is near mile marker 56.4 on the Skyline Drive. #photooftheday #repost #epic #hiking #mountaintop #sunset #blueridgemountains #vaoutdoors Don't forget to tag your #Virginia photos with #LoveVA for a chance to be featured here!
    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!

  • Let’s Talk Turkey

    by Casey | Posted on October 27th, 2010

    Who’s up for a quick turkey sandwich and then off to shop?!

    Magnolias at the MillPerhaps we shouldn’t rush Thanksgiving too much, but certainly plan to walk it off, if you know what I mean.

    First Objective: A Fabulous Dinner Without the Fuss

    • The Inn at Meander Plantation in Locust Dale has two seatings for their four-course dinner - 1 and 4 p.m. – at $75/person. Wine pairings and top shelf beverages available for additional fee.
    • The Natural Bridge Dining Room in Natural Bridge offers an all-you-can-eat buffet from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
    • The Holladay House Bed and Breakfast in Orange invites you to dine with them at 6:30 p.m. for free-range turkey, a wide array of side dishes, and great company for just $39.

    The best thing about these dining options is that you can also book a room and call it a night.

    ShoppingSecond Objective: Serious Shopping

    • For a central location, choose Richmond. There’s ecclectic Carytown, boutique-y Libbie & Grove, robust Short Pump Town Center, and upscale Stony Point Fashion Park, for starters. Consider that Short Pump and Stony Point.
    • Northern Virginia shopping mecca, Tysons Corner with Tysons Corner Center (America’s 5th largest mall) and Tysons Galleria, is the go-to area for anything posh, plush or blingged-out. With Tiffany’s saliva-inducing blue box nearby and any designer tag you’d ever care to find, it’s serious one-stop shopping.
    • Deal-seekers will go the way of the outlet, of which Virginia has plenty. Choose your destination wisely and save anywhere from 30 to 70% on designer duds! From Potomac Mills in Woodbridge to Williamsburg Premium Outlets, and even a JC Penney Outlet in Martinsville, you can get those retails pieces you love for bargain prices. More outlets (and look for the special deals mixed in!).

    Third Objective: Shop for the One Who Has Everything
