  • State Fair of Virginia
    The Mid-Atlantic Balloon Festival gives visitors a chance to get an up-close view of more than 20 hot-air balloon teams from across the country, and then observe them in their natural habitat: the sky. The weekend-long festival is held on the grassy expanse of Meadow Event Park. The main attractions are the morning and early-evening flights, when all 20 colorful vessels take to the air at once and gracefully interrupt the annual paper-plane migration. On Saturday, a sweeping balloon-glow display will light up the night sky. Meanwhile, off-site rides instill wonder with dawn or near-dusk flights in one of the balloons?and include transportation back to the grounds in the chase car. And yet balloons aren't the festival's only draw: regional crafts vendors display their hand-made apparel and arts, while craft beer and wine tastings pair with food from local restaurants. Throughout each day, live bands play classic rock and new wave, old-school jazz and R&B, and folk-infused country.

  • River City Body Jewlery
    Five tattoo artists make River City Tattoo their sacred studio, and each one has an inking style all their own. A quick look at the team's portfolio highlights these subtle differences. Adam Marton, for example, emblazons skin with colors from across the spectrum, while Ashly's monochrome markings express just as much in black and white. Ranging from abstract to classic?and everything in between?the team's eclectic designs are nonetheless unified by the artists' dedication to self-expression. Of course, sometimes those expressions won't make sense in the future's arcane hieroglyphic language, so River city can also remove existing tattoos permanently.

  • Colesville Nursery
    All visitors to Colesville Nursery scrutinize a list of plants and a map upon their arrival, as if gearing up for a scavenger hunt. The preparation makes sense, considering that guests are unleashed onto the sprawling grounds, where they walk or drive through more than 50 packed acres of plants. The vast plant selection includes azaleas, roses, ornamental grasses, and even topiaries, whereas the garden shop supplies green thumbs with gardening tools and organic fertilizers. Once customers hone in on their ideal plants, staff members carefully help load the leafy bounty into cars without damaging blossoms or rousting sleepy garden gnomes. If the flora is too big to fit in your vehicle, the nursery happily delivers to locales within a 100-mile radius.

  • Oreck Factory Outlets
    "Never, never, never give up," is the driving mantra for David Oreck, who flew combat missions with the US Army Air Forces in World War II and returned home to build a business empire from scratch. He set out to design a machine to lighten hotel employees' load, making a lightweight vacuum cleaner as opposed to the traditional bulky, burdensome commercial cleaners. Naturally, the domestic market began clamoring for his high-powered yet easy-to-handle devices, and soon Oreck vacuums could be found in homes throughout the country. Today, the company continues its tradition of innovation, simplifying household tasks with Steam-Glide mops for hard floors, HEPA-filter upright vacuums, and stain-killing cleaning products. Oreck's commitment to clean sends it headlong into the future, with high-tech air filters that react to their environment with automatic sensory controls, filtering odors, allergens, and curse words.
