Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, which sparks thoughts of romantic getaways. This year, take advantage of Blue Ridge Parkway Lodging Packages that help cultivate love.

Maison Beliveau in Blacksburg is offering a Love, Sweet Love romantic package. Enjoy champagne and chocolates in your room upon arrival. Once settled, join the complimentary wine and cheese social hour, or relax in your room by the fireplace or in the jetted tub. You’ll love the four course gourmet dinner, complete with bottle of wine, in this French Country Inn’s intimate dining room.

Floyd’s Mountain Rose Inn is featuring a Winter Weekend Getaway Special through May 8, 2011, that is sure to spark romance in any couple. Find a half dozen roses in the room when you arrive, along with a bottle of Foggy Ridge First Fruits Hard Cider and chocolates.

Tree Streets Inn in Waynesboro invites you to spend Valentine’s Day with them. Enjoy a romantic dinner by candlelight in front of a crackling fire on Saturday February 12, and a full breakfast in the morning.

The Blue Ridge Mountains are glorious in the winter. Romp in the snow with your sweetie, then curl up together by the fire. Lovely. Look for Blue Ridge Parkway Bed and Breakfast Packages this winter. Travel for less, and travel often.

Virginia Tourist Attractions

Jefferson's Monticello

Virginia Tourist Attractions are too numerous to list comprehensively here. Still, a few destinations leap to mind when one thinks of “must visit” areas in Virginia.

1. Jamestown and Yorktown. Jamestown was the first permanent colony in America, settled in 1607. General George Washington’s victory at Yorktown brought a decisive end to the Revolutionary War. The living history museums, exhibits and films at Jamestown and Yorktown are not to be missed when visiting Virginia’s Tidewater region.

2. Williamsburg. Colonial Williamsburg is perhaps the most impressive living history museum in the country. Impeccably preserved, artfully managed, it brings the history of colonial times to life like nothing else. Stay in a Williamsburg bed and breakfast while you’re there.

3. Monticello. The magnificent home of Thomas Jefferson sits on a mountain outside of Charlottesville. Tour the gardens and the house and learn about the genius who designed it.

4. Arlington National Cemetery. Each visitor to Arlington National Cemetery has a unique experience. People come to pay respects to departed loved ones and to visit the graves of prominent historical figures. Many Northern Virginia bed and breakfasts are a short drive from Arlington and Washington D.C.

5. Blue Ridge Parkway. Glorious any time of year, during fall foliage, winter snow, spring blooms, and long summer days.

As always, we hope you’ll decide to stay in Virginia bed and breakfasts as you travel throughout our lovely state.
