    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.

    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?
