In yesterday's Got Plans? discussion, an Arlington reader's thoughts turned to warmer weather. "We ladies were hoping to celebrate all things related to the bride-to-be by booking a B&B in Virginia for a weekend in July," she says. "Activities wise, we were hoping to go tubing one day and go wine tasting the next, or vice versa." She'd already been tubing near Harper's Ferry, and was looking for a new option.
With the daylight extending this weekend and the temperature rising, we're eager to think about summertime recreation, too. The James River runs conveniently near the Charlottesville area, which is home to many Virginia wineries. James River Runners opens for the season in early April with all kinds of trips, from tubing to kayaking. Tubing trips, which range from two to four hours, are $19 per person and $8 per cooler tube.
As for a clearinghouse of inns, the Virginia tourism Web site lists lots of B&Bs, so it depends what amenities are most important to you. If you're interested in having other going-out activities within walking distance, the Dinsmore House Inn puts you in the midst of Charlottesville, so there are lots of restaurants at the ready and 15 vineyards within 25 miles. Innkeepers there will help you learn about winery tours; you can either drive yourself or they'll put you in touch with a company that will shuttle you between tastings. For more options, check recent stories from the Escapes column.
Any Wahoos out there have suggestions for a B&B to fit these bachelorettes' needs? Add your ideas to the comments.
