Virginia-Page Theater

Last time we were in Virginia my dad and I went to the movies. It was right before I went to college and the movie we saw was Toy Story 3, I admit I cried, but since Andy was going off to college and I was too, it makes sense. What we loved about the [...]

Virginia- Stephan’s Sugar Shack

Last time we went to where the Sugar Shack currently is, it was part of the Dip 'n Dot's chain. Stephan's Sugar Shack still serves dip 'n dot's but now they serve other things. The decor of a somewhat summer surfing feel hasn't left.  I ordered the cookies and cream dip 'n dots, and ate [...]

Virginia- Blackfriars Playhouse: Macbeth

  Last time we were in Virginia we went and saw The Taming of the Shrew at Blackfriars Playhouse and greatly enjoyed the atmosphere. Their tagline is "We do it with the lights on" because like Shakespeare's original Blackfriar's indoor theater they leave the lights on during the performance. (what use to be chandeliers of [...]

Virginia-Shops in Staunton

One late afternoon we headed back to Stanton to see a show, but we arrived early so that we could explore downtown a bit. The Dragon's Hoard 17 East Johnson StreetThe Dragon's Hoard caught me by the title. It's near Pufferbellies and sells board games, cards, modeling supplies, dice and other gaming supplies. Pufferbellies: Toys [...]

Virginia-Skyland Resort’s Pollock Restaurant

Last time we went to Virginia and up on the Skyline Drive we stopped to eat at a restaurant over looking the mountains. It was gorgeous, somewhat fancy and I couldn't remember which one it was, and after stopping at the wrong spot we backtracked and found it again at Skyland. Skyland existed long before [...]

Virginia-Shenandoah National Park: Dark Hollow Falls

The Skyline drive of the Shenandoah National Park also is filled with parking spots for hiking. Even if you are not planning to go hiking I suggest you wear tennis shoes or hiking boots, just in case and bring water. Why? Because I didn't plan to go hiking and I still went hiking, without water [...]

Virginia- Skyline Drive

There are several Skyline Drives throughout the US at least. The one in Virginia runs through the Shenandoah National Park and Blue Ridge Mountains. It's a 105 mile (168.9km) long road where animals are likely to run out. There are 75 overlooks where cars can pull over (when the area is not under construction) and look [...]

Virginia-Pack’s Frozen Custard

On our way back to the bunkhouse we were staying at from the Belle Grove Plantation we stopped for frozen custard. There seem to be several Pack's Frozen Custard's around Virginia, small little stands. Custard tends to have a thickness to it that what we ordered didn't have. I ordered a cheesecake oreo pack attack, [...]
