It’s all about the best views, burgers, bacon and beer this month in the Roanoke Valley in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains!

Our July E-Newsletter has information and resources to help you plan your next summer trip to Virginia’s Blue Ridge, where you’ll find outdoor adventures, delicious food, powerful history, and exciting events.

Make sure your camera is set to “Pano” mode when you visit these spots that feature the Best Panoramic Views in Virginia’s Blue Ridge. You’ll also want to get a few selfies when visiting the unique pieces of Public Art in Virginia’s Blue Ridge. And of course we love seeing pics of dogs on the trails, which is perfect for our list of Dog Friendly Hikes.

If you’re the type who prefers taking pictures of your food, we’ve got you covered with our guide to the Best Burgers in Virginia’s Blue Ridge. There’s even a festival this weekend that’s all about bacon! Make your plans to head to Berglund Center for BaconFest VA.

Following BaconFest VA, the fun continues in Elmwood Park for this year’s Deschutes Street Pub - a block party with craft beer, live music and more.

Remember to tag all your pictures at these unique experiences with our #BlueRidgeDay hashtag!
