Our first road trip was to North Carolina, stopping at a few places in Virginia along the way. First off was lunch at historic Michie Tavern, near Charlottesville and a browse through the museum. We stopped at Bedford to pay our respects at the National D-Day Memorial.
We stayed overnight in Roanoke in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Fall was nearly over but the colours were still amazing. Of course we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see the Roanoke Star, the largest free-standing illuminated star in the world!
