Dog-friendly breweries in @downtownroanokeinc! I spent four days in Roanoke with Malinda, who was a fabulous travel companion, and I was thrilled that every brewery we visited allowed dogs - some just on the patio, and others throughout the brewery! There are too many to list, but here are our favorites: * Olde Salem Brewing Company on Market Street - @osbcmarketstreet - Dogs welcome inside. Every beer I tried here was fantastic, but for summer sipping, I recommend the Heartbroken In Disrepair, a really flavorful raspberry wheat beer. * Golden Cactus Brewing - @goldencactusbrewing - Dogs are welcome inside and out at Golden Cactus. Inside is open and airy with plants everywhere. The outside is vibrant and colorful. We saw lots of kids too! We loved the Rubus, which was fruity and sour. * Big Lick Brewing Company - @biglickbrewingco - Spacious outdoor patio with live music and cornhole. Big Lick is right across the street from Golden Cactus. Well-behaved dogs are welcome inside and out, and there were lots of other dogs when we visited. We were missing home, so enjoyed a White Bronco, New England IPA. * Three Notch'd Craft Kitchen & Brewery - @threenotchdroa - Bonus points because they served yummy food, which we enjoyed on their sidewalk patio (dog-friendly). We tried, and loved, their most popular brew, King of Clouds Juicy IPA. * Now I want to hear your favorites! @visitvbr

The mountain laurels are blooming in @newrivernps and I can’t get enough - such perfect symmetry and a nice pop of color to contrast with every shade of green!

It's the perfect time of year for a hiking getaway, and if you've never been to the beautiful city of Roanoke, put it on your list. We just spent four days exploring easy/moderate trails just outside of the city. All of them featured gorgeous views! Here are the ones I loved: * Buzzards Rock at Read Mountain Preserve: This is a nice, four-mile loop with a fantastic view from the rock* Sawtooth Ridge on the AT: Park in the same lot as the popular McAffe Knob trail, but go south on the AT instead of north for an easy 2-mile out-and-back hike with a great view. * Mill Mountain Star: This is an iconic hike and it's very close to Roanoke. 3.7 miles round-trip with a stop at Roanoke's famous star. There are nice amenities at the top as well - a zoo, picnic area, and wildflower garden. * Poor Mountain Natural Area: We did a loop that brought us down into a canyon and past a small waterfall, then back out of the canyon. The mountain laurels are blooming! * Save this post to plan your own hiking adventures with @visitvbr.

It’s a beautiful morning to stroll the Roanoke River Greenway. Lots of people out enjoying this gorgeous Sunday! @playroanoke #playroanoke

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to have two new puppies added to my extended family in the past year! Meet my newest puppy niece, Zelda! She’s a 5-month-old golden retriever, and her parents are doing an amazing job with her! . We met up for a lightning fast visit in Shenandoah National Park. Such a gorgeous place, and one of the most dog-friendly parks we’ve been to!

Woof 🐾💕🐾💕

Beautiful Lake Havasu ✨ * One of our favorite spots for a relaxing lake vacation is in Arizona - surprise! I fell in love with Lake Havasu after my very first visit. It’s a great spot to get outside all through the year, whether you enjoy hiking, paddling, swimming, or landscape photography. Honestly, Lake Havasu City is an outdoor lover’s dream! Have you ever been to @golakehavasu?

Waterfalls and wildflowers with my favorite adventurers 🐾. Who are you taking on your next adventure?

Happy National Picnic Day! I wish it wasn’t pouring because eating outside is one of my favorite things. What about you?

Would you spend a few days tucked away in this cozy little yurt in Vermont? This gem of a spot is located on a small horse farm in New Haven, Vermont, and there’s lots of hiking nearby. It’s available on @airbnb as Song Bird Sangha Yurt.

Spring clean-up with our regional branch manager 🐾

It’s finally starting to look and feel like spring in Vermont! The pull of the outdoors is making it so hard to sit down and write. I’m trying to be flexible so I can enjoy every minute of spring sunshine. . Here’s how I’m getting outside between deadlines: - planting my backyard garden - walking the puppers - playing with my camera - foraging for wild food - ramps and dandelion - next up fiddleheads! - visiting local waterfalls - they are beautiful this time of year! . How are you getting outside this spring? ✨

Explore the world's highest tides and have a unique camping experience at @Fundy National Park, Parks Canada. This incredible spot is high on our list of favorite destinations for a family vacation! With beautiful scenery around every bend and several fantastic campgrounds, Fundy National Park is a must-visit destination in New Brunswick. * Pictured: 1) Rowan enjoying the sunset at Point Wolfe Beach. 2) Gabe enjoying the sunrise at the same beach. 3) The Ôasis glamping site at Point Wolfe Campground, 4) An oTENTik in Point Wolfe Campground. 5) the Point Wolfe Covered Bridge.

Happy spring, y’all! What are you looking forward to with the changing season? . Here’s my list: - boycotting socks! - starting seeds - road trip picnics - camping! - earlier sunrises and later sunsets . Not looking forward to muddy boots and muddy dogs, the smell of manure on the air (thanks, rural living), or ticks.

Soaking up these winter views while I still can. The long anticipated spring sunshine is working hard to melt the snow, and I can’t say I’m upset about it ❄️☀️
