    From late July through early August of 1927, artists such as The Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers and more made musical recordings in a makeshift studio in downtown Bristol. Those recordings became known as the 1927 Bristol Sessions, and they made Bristol the birthplace of #countrymusic. Tomorrow, 87 years later, a museum dedicated to the history of country music, starting with those 1927 Sessions, opens to the public in downtown #Bristol. This is a must-visit for music fanatics and connoisseurs! Photo props to @amandastrav. #bcmm #birthplaceofcountrymusic #oldschoolva #vatravel #loveva #records #virginia #musiclovers @bcmbristol
    If you're in #VirginiaBeach and looking for a killer #breakfast with local gourmet #coffee, you HAVE to check out Zeke's Beans & Bowls. Their #acai bowls, made-to-order with fresh fruit, will knock your socks off! This is their North Pole Bowl, acai topped with granola, banana, mango, blueberries, cocoanut and almonds. The cafe's eclectic, retro-beach vibe is also a #morning mood lifter. #loveva #vafood #goodmorning #wakeup #getinmybelly #freshfruit @visitvabeach @zekesvb

    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.
