The best journeys include a bit of spontaneity and a whole lot of fun. Soak up the unexpected this summer by immersing yourself in everything our destinations have to offer.

Summer is the time to make the most of every moment, every memory. Get a glimpse of colonial history at Smithfield Plantation located near The Inn at Virginia Tech; visit the awe-inspiring Grand Teton National Park when you stay at Snow King Resort Hotel in Jackson Hole; dine in a former World War II Officer’s Club at Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center; or escape to a 17th-century temple close to Turtle Bay Resort.

Let your tastebuds run wild with the flavors of summer. Sample breads, cookies, and pastries from family-owned Scala Bakery near The Heldrich; get a taste of gourmet foods and fine wine at The Cork & More, a Forest Suites Resort favorite; sample craft spirits like Rock Peach Vodka at Rebecca Creek Distillery by Hotel Contessa; and enjoy live music while you eat, drink, and be merry at the Friday Night Farmers’ Market close to Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa.
