Virginia's Blue Ridge is a destination that offers all kinds of adventures.

Whether you're interested in exploring the outdoors, sampling local food & drink, or getting to know the local culture, it's all part of the experience.

Many of those adventures are highlighted in a new post by Border Free Travels titled "Blue Ridge Mountain Getaway: Adventure Awaits."

The post was written by Kristen Kellogg, who visited the region in May 2017 as part of a media tour hosted by Visit Virginia's Blue Ridge.

The story showcases some of the activities she took part in during her visit, such as mountain biking at Carvins Cove, wake surfing at Smith Mountain Lake, and attending a Salem Red Sox game.

Here is an excerpt from the story:

"Conquering Mountains on two wheels and riding waves like a pro on day one made me feel alive, energized, and most of all present, which was something I hadn’t felt in a really long time. Trying something new that required my full concentration allowed me the headspace I needed to refresh my mind."
