    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.

    #HappyBirthday to #NASA, launched 51 years ago in 1958. This is an awesome shot of the Minotaur V launch from #WallopsIsland, #Virginia last September by @_miancab. If you're interested in watching their next #launch, the Antares is scheduled for October of this year (date TBD). You can view from bleachers or the rooftop observation deck at the Wallops Island Flight Facility Visitor Center OR you can watch from Chincoteague or the Assateague Island beach. #rocket #loveva #space #stars #photooftheday #blastoff @nasa

  • Spring Fever

    Wait. Do you have Spring Fever, too?

    When a warm day like yesterday comes along, it only makes us long for more of them. Be prepared for the next glorious day with these warm-weather suggestions.

    • Take a hike in the nearest Virginia State Park. With 35 to choose from, you’ll find one close by. All said, there are more than 500 miles of trails and in this 75th Anniversary year, there is no time like the present to enjoy a few of them.
    • Dust off the clubs and hit the greens along the brand new Virginia Golf Trail. While ever-growing, current courses on the Trail include the likes of Cannon Ridge in Stafford, Keswick near Charlottesville, and Heritage Oaks in Harrisonburg.
    • Pump up the tires for a mountain bike ride. Trails are plentiful across the Commonwealth. From the inspiring (and breathtaking – literally) Mount Rogers Loop near Damascus and the notable 35-mile Virginia Creeper Trail to the trails of Dirty Dancing famed Mountain Lake Hotel, your choice will be hard to make!
