    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!

    Drive-Ins: Remember What You’ve Been Missing?

    by Casey | Posted on July 29th, 2011

    Drive-in movie theaters are few and far between, and gosh, they’re so much fun! If you forgot about these old-school hot spots, refresh your memory and get to one soon for new memory-making.

    Hull's Drive-In, LexingtonVirginia’s oldest operating drive-in dates to 1949 – Moonlite Drive-In in Abingdon – and is registered with both the state and nationally as a historic location. The flicks are still showing every weekend seasonally.

    Revamped and featuring tons of family fun is the Park Place Drive-In in Marion. The original theater dated to 1954, but this “new and improved” venue includes a mini golf course, batting cages, an arcade, and yummy ice cream shop.

    Missing the memories they made in their younger days and seeking reasonable entertainment for their young family, a couple in Hadensville built and opened their own theater only a year or two ago. Goochland Drive-In includes a concession stand and does it like the old days – double features on the cheap.

    My own hometown drive-in, Hull’s in Lexington, is the only community-owned non-profit theater in the country and dates to 1950. The popcorn is still as good as it was when I was neckin’ in the back row (and when my parents were neckin’ in the back row in the late ’70s)! Take your dinner with you, and your pet, too, for a great night out.

    Get back to wholesome fun when you treat the family to a drive-in night. It’s affordable, it’s togetherness, and if we’re not careful, it will be a lost pastime. Learn more about Virginia’s ten drive-ins on Virginia.org.
