Deep within you, at your very core, lies your Passionality – that essential driving life force that yearns for nourishment. Virginia is the very place to feed your life force and to immerse yourself in the experiences that are essential for your love of life and passion for travel.
Salty breezes of Virginia’s sparkling Atlantic beaches invigorate you like a brilliant sunrise. The piedmont region rolls like lush green waves broken by scenic rivers and streams and carries you on country back roads that will become part of your permanent road map. The Blue Ridge Mountains lift your soul as they rise above the mist of the Shenandoah Valley while down in the Southwest Virginia Appalachians the pluck of banjo and dulcimer echo the songs of your own heartstrings.
What is it that fuels your Passionality? Is it the cry of a bald eagle as it flies above your head on the banks of the Potomac River? Does walking in the footsteps of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson or Tom Wolfe put a spring in your step? It might be that your inner being is best reached at a rejuvenating spa and resort where you can luxuriate in serene splendor at one moment and enjoy a festive toast of Virginia wine the next.
Savor a fine meal at a five-star restaurant or quaint small town diner. Walk through the vineyard and enjoy a tasting at one of Virginia’s nearly 140 wineries. Make your way through a hip shopping district or along the streets of a small town that will become your new home away from home. Relax and luxuriate and a legendary country inn.
Step onto a Virginia Civil War battlefield and somewhere in your soul you’ll hear the guns of long ago. Walk Colonial Williamsburg’s Duke of Gloucester Street and imagine yourself there on the eve of the American Revolution. Visit Richmond’s Jackson Ward and learn about the woman who started with a vision for her neighborhood and became the first female bank president in America.
Paddle a kayak through the reeds of the Chesapeake shoreline or ride a horse along a Blue Ridge mountain trail. Train your binoculars on a pileated woodpecker or set your sights on a lush fairway and faraway green. Greet a sunrise and meet new friends. Both will warm your inner being and carry you through your day in Virginia.
