Virginia is for lovers! Also, for families, groups, singles but, especially in my case, the perfect Girls’ Getaway. There are just some places that deserve more than a 4 day visit, and just some times when you and a few friends deserve more than 4 days of fun. So Virginia, here we come!
This is a trip that has been in the works for quite awhile and it is packed with activities. No need to worry about the falling Canadian dollar on this trip. With gas prices at all time lows this driving vacation is remarkably affordable and once you arrive in Virginia you will be amazed at how affordable amenities are.
We begin our trip departing Canada early Friday morning, August 21st crossing at the Peace Bridge and heading directly for the back roads taking the scenic route. Don’t bother with the Duty Free shop because it is cheaper just to buy from a regular store once in or near Va. We have booked amazing accommodation at Wintergreen Resort and after our beautifully scenic drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we spend a relaxing hour or two at the spa then head to The Devil’s Backbone Brewing Company and Restaurant for dinner and socializing before our big event – The Spartan Run – on Saturday.
This is the Super Spartan Run and we will have been training for months for this. Most visitors come to Wintergreen to enjoy far less grueling and more pleasant pursuits such as, golf, swimming, hiking, zip-lining etc. Not us girls though. We are there to give it our all and then to have the best vacation ever.
Stay tuned. More to come……
