    #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

    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

    Share the LOVE, Be One in a Million!

    by Casey | Posted on May 1st, 2012

    Virginia.org is consistently one of the top travel websites, but for the month of May our hearts yearn to push it over the top and make our biggest splash yet. Will you help?

    Share the LOVE, Be One in a Million and WIN! Click to Enter.The Goal: ONE MILLION visitors to Virginia.org for the month of May

    What’s In It For You: Prizes will be given away each time we see the visits to Virginia.org increase by 100,000. And they’ll get bigger and better.

    Here’s How: Go to www.Virginia.org/OneInAMillion/ and enter to win one of 55 awesome prizes. Then share the sweepstakes with your friends and family through Facebook, Twitter, and email for up to 10 extra entries in the sweepstakes.

    What We’re Giving Away: A ha! That’s what I’m not supposed to tell you. What I can say is that the first prize is a Virginia State Parks annual pass and a $100 gas card. We’ll be giving away ten of those prize packs valued at $170 but not until we see our first 100,000 visits.

    Additionally, I’ll go ahead and tell you that the GRAND PRIZE is a completely amazing family-of-four vacation (I’m not allowed to enter, but if I could, I would, so you better …)

    • Coastal Suite at Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront, a catered dinner on the beach by a local chef, and a family beach kit loaded with fun-in-the-sun goodies.
    • VIP slumber party INSIDE the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, which includes red carpet arrival to the IMAX theater and a behind-the-scenes tour.
    • An overnight stay in an original colonial house at Colonial Williamsburg, plus kids’ colonial costumes for playing dress-up.
    • VIP treatment at Busch Gardens with front-of-the-line passes for rides and dining. Oh, and that dining? It’s included, too.
    • Round-trip airfare and rental car are also included.

    So, will you help? Remember, the faster we reach our benchmarks the faster we’ll unlock bigger and better prizes. It all culminates with that loaded grand prize. How can you not be in?
