    Have you hiked Roaring Run Trail in Eagle Rock, #VA? An excellent family #hike, the trail passes rock walls, cascading water, five foot bridges and even a natural water slide before ending at Roaring Run Falls. At the head of the trail is Roaring Run Furnace, ruins of a 19th century furnace operation. Roaring Run #Creek is also known for trout fishing. #VAOutdoors #waterfall #loveva #repost #roaringrun #virginia #perspective #photooftheday Kudos to @spezzaroo for the beautiful photo!

  • Thanksgiving in the Mountains

    by Casey | Posted on November 18th, 2013

    What do you say the whole family goes away for Thanksgiving and lets someone else do the cooking? I say it’s a fantastic idea. No one slaves over the stove and everyone has a great time. Where can you do such a thing? Virginia’s mountains resorts come to mind. Check it out.

    The Omni Homestead Resort

    The Omni Homestead Resort

    The Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs will keep you plenty busy this Thanksgiving! In addition to the activities listed below, there are shopping opportunities, special movie showings in the historic theater, and the outdoor fun you’ve come to expect from this famed resort.

    • Children’s crafting classes
    • Wine Tastings
    • Tree Lighting Ceremony
    • Santa Claus
    • Thanksgiving Brunch and Dinner Buffets

      Wintergreen Resort

      Wintergreen Resort

    Wintergreen Resort welcomes families to enjoy their traditions of feasts, illuminations, workshops, and maybe even slope sports during Thanksgiving on the Mountain.

    • Turkey Day 5K
    • Thanksgiving Buffet at either Copper Mine Bistro or Devils Grill
    • The Plunge Tubing Park will be open (weather permitting)
    • Ski Swap – buy and sell used skis, boots, snowboards, ski clothing, etc.
    • Gingerbread House, Wreath and Ornament Workshops
    • Grand Illumination
    Primland Resort

    Primland Resort

    What goes with Thanksgiving better than Native American Month? Primland Resort in Meadows of Dan is embracing the heritage and history to offer “Long Night’s Time,” a weekend full of Native American-themed special events.

    • Celebration of Native American Month
    • Presentation of famous Native Americans
    • Little-known inventions of Native Americans
    • Food sampling of a traditional Cherokee feast
    • Face painting activity
    • Basket weaving and beading display and presentation

      Massanutten Resort Indoor Waterpark

      Massanutten Resort Indoor Waterpark

    Massanutten Resort offers comfortable accommodations, plus Thanksgiving dining at your choice of Fareways Restaurant & Lounge or Blue Ridge Buffet & Restaurant. The menus are all you’d expect of a traditional Thanksgiving meal – turkey with stuffing and gravy, pumpkin bisque soup, apple pie … yum! If the temperatures are too warm for snowmaking, turn to the indoor waterpark! That’s a fun Thanksgiving for the kiddos!

    Just like Massanutten, Bryce Resort also offers a Thanksgiving Day lunch buffet with all the trimmings. ┬áStay in one of the resort condos or cabins and enjoy the holiday arts and craft show taking place on the 30th. It’s a great time to kick back and not do much at all or get out and shop the nearby towns.

    Whatever your Thanksgiving plans, have fun and enjoy being together!

    Virginia is for Lovers.
