  Last night, I fell in love with the small town of Clifton, Virginia. Perhaps it was the lack of stoplights or the epic sunset after an otherwise rainy day. Or maybe it was the Amtrak zipping across Main Street or the ease in which I was able to buy cupcakes from one

  Nestled amongst the rolling hills between Wilmington, Delaware and Philadelphia lies the picturesque Brandywine Valley. With gorgeous du Pont family estates and more than 3,000 acres of landscaped gardens, it’s a region best known for being a flower-lover’s paradise.

Over the past 18 months, the small town of Marion, Virginia has experienced an incredible revitalization. Prompted by a community-wide determination to stimulate the local economy, new entrepreneurs and small businesses are flooding the historic downtown district to show that in terms of tourism, Marion means business.

  Located in the scenic foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville, Virginia is a city that really celebrates its historic roots. The area in and around Charlottesville was once home to 3 of our nation’s earliest presidents--- Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe--- and today over 200 years later,

Before last weekend, I had never stayed at one of Shenandoah National Park's lodges, opting instead to "rough it" and camp outside with friends. After one glorious night at the historic Skyland Resort... well--- sorry, friends--- I don't think I could ever go back to camping again! Here in the heart of Shenandoah National

Recently, I've felt like I've been moving at over 100 miles per hour. Work, travel, this blog and just... life has been moving at a rapid-fire pace, with no signs of slowing down in sight. Last Friday, as I drove down Route US-211 West, towards the small town of Sperryville, Virginia and

Ah, summer! With the season's long days and warm nights comes ample opportunities for fun in the sun throughout the whole mid-Atlantic region. Whether you're aching to paddle down a river, hike to a waterfall, sit on a beach, roast s'mores over a campfire, chase lightening bugs, hit up a historical
