AAA World Magazine editor Theresa Medoff visited Virginia's Blue Ridge for a metro mountain experience in early 2021. Her piece, "Blue Ridge Mountain High," is featured on the cover of AAA World's July/August 2021 issue and appeared both in print and online.

The article highlights paddling with Twin River Outfitters, Roanoke Mountain Adventures and Blue Mountain Adventures, craft beer at Starr Hill Pilot Brewery and Parkway Brewing Company, and the region's acclaim for mountain biking as a Silver-Level Ride Center.

The following is an excerpt from the piece:

"Virginia's Blue Ridge not only boasts an abundance of places to hike, run, mountain bike, road bike, paddle and camp...but it also offers a mix of urban, rural and backcountry scenery as well as a range of trails, from those suitable for families with young children to those that will challenge even the most serious athletes."
