    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.

  • 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.
