Do You Have What it Takes?

homepage-copy2

The countdown has started to the New River Gorge Bridge Day on Saturday, October 18, 2014. On that day, BASE jumpers leap 800+ feet into the New River Gorge below, or are launched by the Human Catapult. Rappelling, skydiving, and more adventure abound. You ready?

BASE stands for Building, Antenna, Span, and Earth. BASE jumpers leap from any and all of these four fixed objects with parachutes designed specifically for rapid deployment. Known around the world as the most extreme of extreme sports, BASE jumpers look forward to Bridge Day ® every year.

The New River Gorge Bridge saw its first BASE jumpers in 1979, just 2 years after the bridge was completed and opened to the public. As more and more people entered the sport, the tradition of coming to West Virginia for Bridge Day has grown- more than 800 jumps were made last year.

The vast majority of people (more than 80,000 expected) visit to Bridge Day to watch. All of the jumpers are registered, and can make as many jumps as they are able to within a six hour window.

Entries must be received through the http://www.visitroanokeva.com contest sign-up page by 12:00 Midnight EST on August 24, 2014.
One entry per person

Virginia is the home of some of my favorite weekend destinations, and now they’ve added another facet to their sparkling attractions. Roanoke Valley in Virginia’s scenic Blue Ridge Mountains has more restaurants per capita than any other destination in Virginia, which makes it a delicious culinary scene.

To celebrate their unique food culture, Visit Roanoke VA has created a Fun for Foodies Sweepstakes. One lucky winner will be selected to win a trip for two that includes some amazing culinary experiences in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The prize package includes a two-night stay for two guests at the Comfort Inn Airport – Roanoke. The hotel is conveniently located near the airport and great shopping at Valley View Mall, and also offers easy access to many local attractions in the area. You’ll also be able to take advantage of the hotel’s outdoor pool, complimentary deluxe breakfast and many more amenities during your stay.

The winner will have the opportunity to dine at The Roanoker Restaurant. Recognized by Southern Living and Today on NBC as being home to some of the best biscuits in the country, The Roanoker Restaurant has established itself as an icon of southern cooking and hospitality.

The package also features a gift certificate for dinner at Local Roots, a Farm-to-Table Restaurant. With its charming atmosphere in Roanoke’s quaint Grandin Village, Local Roots prepares fabulous food using local ingredients to create a first-class dining experience that celebrates the spirit of the region.

The winner will even receive two passes to take part in a food tour with Roanoke Food Tours. A historic downtown food tour is a wonderful way to enjoy amazing food while also learning about the rich history and culture of Roanoke’s Downtown. You could also sample some fantastic cuisine on the new Sunday Brunch Tour, and don’t be surprised if you make a few new friends along the way.

For when you’re not eating great food, you’ll also receive two VIP Passes, which include free admission to many popular local attractions, including the Mill Mountain Zoo, Virginia Museum of Transportation and wine tasting at Chateau Morrisette.

The menu is full of incredible experiences in Virginia’s Blue Ridge. Sign up now for your chance to win!
