    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.

  • End of Summer Travel Deals

    by Casey | Posted on August 14th, 2012

    As the sun begins to set on summer the travel deals heat up. Sneak in a mid-week or Labor Day weekend getaway for the best savings.

    Holiday Inn & Suites North Beach, Virginia Beach

    The Natural Bridge of Virginia is one-stop family fun. See the famed Bridge itself, along with the Monacan Indian Village, Caverns, Wax Museum, Butterfly exhibit and Foamhenge for around $200, depending on the ages of your children — a 20% discount. That’s a lot to do with a one-night stay and hearty country breakfast included.

    Get in one last beach experience with a three-night oceanfront getaway to Holiday Inn & Suites North Beach. They’re offering up to 15% off the rack rate to help you get there.

    Maybe you’re lucky enough to squeeze in five nights at the beach. If so, Ocean Beach Club Resort – a fun Miami-feeling accommodation – is offering a 5th night free for stays through September 27.

    Yearning for cool breezes? Head to the mountains for what will feel like an early fall – the perfect temps for coffee on the deck at Meadow Villas at Warm Springs. Stay two nights in a comfortable villa and the second night is 20% off.

    Blackstone is a charming town with a slightly slower pace perfect for those looking for a quiet place to catch their breath at the end of summer. Stay at the Grey Swan Inn Bed and Breakfast for two nights and the innkeepers will give you a $25 discount. You can call that gas money, lunch money, spending money …

    Wine, shopping, history, outdoor fun – none are too far away from the Mark Addy Inn in Nellysford where you can save up to 40% just by staying during the week (Monday-Thursday).

    Another mid-week stay you’ll want to check out is The Inn at Tabbs Creek in Port Haywood along the Chesapeake Bay. Save 20% off the regular rates just by choosing to stay two nights between Sunday and Thursday. On top of that, if you want to stay a third night you’ll get it at 30% off.

    These are just a few of the travel deals you’ll find waiting at Virginia.org. Enjoy what’s left of summer and take a sneak peek of fall!

    LOVE is at the heart of every Virginia vacation. Virginia is for Lovers.

      I have not been to the Virginia coast in more than 20 years. Came across you site while doing a google search. Hope to make plans to go there next summer.
