Go Virginia Pass is a guide to the "real Virginia" - locally owned, locally grown - with fun freebies and enough members-only deals to pay for your Pass in just a weekend! We give you options to plan an entire trip around Virginia's historic towns or lively cities, saving on every part of your itinerary - lodging, dining, festivals, shopping, adventures, PLUS tastings for those who love a good "libation vacation," including wineries, breweries, distilleries and cideries.
Best of Virginia - The bar to be included in a Go Virginia Pass is high. Businesses cannot pay to be included; they must be invited. Each of our Pass partners is individually researched before they are invited, and many have passed a rigorous review process within their own industry, be it formal - such as the Virginia's Finest certification held by our internet-based partners or the Bed & Breakfast Assn of VA's "reviewed & approved" program - or the informal but perhaps even more daunting "credential" of excellence earned through social media reviews. The Go Virginia Pass program grows weekly, as we discover more of the Best of Virginia Travel. (If you are interested in nominating a business to participate, please email Nancy@GoVirginiaGetaways.com)
How it Works - Buy your Pass online or at one of our Partners and then once you receive your Pass, activate it. Then check out the offers here before you leave home, or on the road - some change, and more are added each week, so check back often! Each offer specifies how to claim it, e.g. show your Pass, show an e-coupon, print a coupon, enter a promo code when booking, etc. All Passes are good through December 31, 2016.
Since 2010 husband-and-wife team Rick Collier and Nancy Bauer have spent hundreds of miles and thousands of hours traveling around Virginia, making friends and contacts, researching and photographing wineries, and visiting venues of all types across the Commonwealth for their Virginia Wine Country Virginia Wine In My Pocket travel app. (Yes, it was a tough job, and yes, someone had to do it!) Five years later, more than 12,000 Virginia wine and travel enthusiasts follow the fast-growing community and use the personal travel-tracking tools at VirginiaWineInMyPocket.com or have downloaded the app from iTunes and Google Play.
Now it's your turn! Go Virginia Getaways offers our contacts and experience finding the best places in Virgina travel for everyone interested in planning a getaway -- whether for a day, a weekend, or a whole vacation.
