    #Downtown #Staunton is filled with amazing #architecture including the Romanesque-Revival Marquis Building seen here. It was designed by T.J. Collins in 1895 (he designed nearly 200 buildings throughout the city in various styles during the #Victorian Era). Note the large umbrella fixed to the corner of the turret! #loveva #virginia #vatravel #mainstreet #vais4lovers #oldschoolva
    Check out this awesome #aerial of the CSX A-Line #Train #Bridge (circa 1919) you've probably seen when driving on the Powhite Parkway crossing #JamesRiver!

    Sip away the end of #summer at North Gate #Vineyard in Pucellville before the crush begins! They have live music every Friday evening (TGIF: Thank Grape It's Friday), making it an ideal time to stop by for a taste. Next month is #Virginia #Wine Month, when a lot of vineyards across the state will be harvesting their #grapes. Photo props to @emkittie! #VAwine #howisummer #winetime Tag your #VA photos with #LoveVA for a chance to get featured here.
    Here's a beautiful shot of @castlehillcider in Keswick posted by @merchcolony_cville. This is currently the only #cidery in the world to be fermenting and aging in buried terra cotta amphorae called kvevri. Plan a trip to try some of the world's finest right here in #Virginia. #loveva #vacider #drinklocal #cville #vatravel #castlehillcider #vaweddings
  • A Day at the Beach for EveryBODY

    by Casey | Posted on August 1st, 2011

    JT's Grommet Island Beach ParkThe ribbon was cut a year ago in May at JT’s Grommet Island Beach Park in Virginia Beach. Built to ensure that everyBODY could enjoy a day at the beach, it’s a 100% handicap accessible oceanfront park. No longer will a wheelchair be a barrier between beach lovers and the surf.

    Read about Josh Thompson’s battle with ALS, his challenges, and the spark of imagination that bloomed into a park for everyBODY.

      I LOVE what has been done for the ones that want to go to the beach but may not be able to go b/c there was no way to get to the water. Not only is it wonderful for them but ,it gives all children a really COOL place to play. It is beautifully done .God Bless.
