    In 1881, both the VA and TN sides of Bristol designated the center of the city's main thoroughfare, State Street, as the VA/TN state line. Tomorrow, thousands of people will fill these #downtown streets with music, food, dancing and crafts in celebration of Bristol's heritage as the Birthplace of Country Music! #Virginia #stateline #countrymusic #loveva #vatravel #Tennessee #mainstreet #musicfestival @bristolrhythm #rhythmandroots
    #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!

    by Casey | Posted on June 5th, 2012

    This Saturday, June 9, is Fee-Free National Park Day and it’s also National Get Outdoors Day. Virginia’s national park sites are perfect places to spend the day and enjoy the very best of Virginia’s natural beauty and history.

    Note that fee-free means there is no entrance fee. Fees still apply to any special events, camping and lodging, food, etc. A majority of National Park Service sites are free admission all the time.

    In addition to the National Parks, Virginia State Parks are participating locations for National Get Outdoors Day, and have special events planned. See the calendar.

     LOVE is at the heart of every Virginia vacation.
