    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!

    LOVE Your Valentine

    by Casey | Posted on February 6th, 2012

    Gentlemen, flowers and chocolate are becoming overrated. Think outside the heart-shaped box and splurge on your sweetest this Valentine’s Day with one of these most excellent travel packages. Do it up right!

    Does she love horses, beautifully rolling countryside, or just amazingly romantic surprises? I suggest the Valentine’s Package at Marriott Ranch in Hume. Your single night stay will include an intimate four-course dinner featuring Philip Carter wines, gourmet chocolates and champagne in your room, a country breakfast, and then horseback riding with a prepared picnic! (It sounds like a fantastic opportunity to pull out a shiny ring and ask an important question.) Choose which room you want and the pricing is between $430 and $525 + tax.

    If your dear one loves wine, the Wine Lovers Tour Package from Arcady Vineyard Bed & Breakfast in Charlottesville is the surprise that will knock her socks off. Spend two nights in a luxury suite with whirlpool tub for two and a port and chocolate turn-down service. A full farm-fresh breakfast will await you each morning. The fun part is a chauffeured tour to four local wineries! $800-$855

    Gourmet dining is the highlight at Maison Beliveau in Blacksburg with their Love, Sweet Love package. You’ll be greeted with champagne and chocolate and then you can choose your own room.  A three-course dinner will be served in the private dining room and in the morning you’ll find more of the same. If you want to add something special – flowers, perhaps – just ask! $395 + tax

    Cardinal Springs Guest House and Farm in Sperryville is offering the Ultimate Romantic Getaway of two nights. Be treated to a bottle of local wine and a $50 certificate to Thornton River Grille. If you’d like to add a couples’ massage or an additional dinner at The Inn at Little Washington, just let the innkeepers know. $465 + tax

    There are many more Valentine’s Day packages available at Virginia.org, so make a wise choice and treat your sweetheart to something so very special. LOVE is at the heart of Valentine’s Day.
