    St. John's #Church in Church Hill, known especially for Patrick Henry's "Give me Liberty, or Give Me #Death" speech, is also the burial place of Edgar Allan Poe's mother, Elizabeth Arnold #Poe. She was a prominent stage actress in her day, and has shown to have great influence on her son's writing. #latergram #rva #edgarallanpoe #cemetery #history #grave #loveva #virginia #vais4lovers @adventuredame @rvais4lovers @vintage_rva

  • Warm Smiles and Freebies, Too

    by Casey | Posted on December 18th, 2012

    The best recommendations and directions always come from “the locals.” Why not utilize them when you’re passing through Virginia?

    Virginia’s Welcome Centers are staffed with courteous, knowledgeable folks who are not only happy to, but eager to help you find a great place to eat, make a room reservation or map a route. Additionally, free crayons and coloring books await your children when you stop by.

    Virginia Welcome Center Resources:

    Alexandra Veatch represents Heartwood: Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Gateway at the Bristol Welcome Center December 21 and 28, offering coupons good for a free 2013 Heartwood calendar.

    Through December, stop into the Lambsburg location for discounts at the Red Hill General Store in Hillsville. Offers include coupons for $1 off a purchase, free soda, $5 off a $30 purchase or $10 off a $60 purchase.

    Through December at the Fredericksburg location the Hilton Garden Inn is offering an $84 per night flat rate; just pick up the flier or coupon book.

    One last request for toys from Santa? Find him at New Church December 21. Passing through the day before? The Center is delighted to host Smokey Bear. Bring your camera in to capture these moments!

      The Ukrop Monument Avenue 10K is my favorite 10K race in the country. It attracts the best field of runners, and it is the race that charity sponsors most want to back. I run exclusively for charity; so I line up sponsors to back me in support of major 501c non-profit charity organizations. Looking forward to race day in 2013!!! Good luck everyone, and cheers to a great year!!!

    2. I love how Virginia caters so well to tourist, and these welcome centers are great. We dropped by one earlier this year, and they were very helpful. Keep up the great work Virginia. We’ll keep coming back!
