We just got an email from the folks that promote tourism for the Commonwealth of Virginia announcing a major travel sweepstakes for 2012, and it's quite nautical.

They are calling the promotion LOVE Aquatic, and it features four grand prize adventures that combine family fun and learning on the water...

Sweepstakes Details
Each of the four prize packages is for a family of four and includes airfare, rental car, overnight lodging, cash card, admission to attractions and a specific aquatic experience with personalized expert instruction. Highlights of the prizes include:
Four nights in a waterside hotel in Norfolk along with VIP access to the tall ships during OPSAIL2012 (more about OPSAIL in a future post - it's going to be huge!).

A vacation at Smith Mountain Lake, complete with pontoon boat rental for four days and boating safety lessons

Four nights in an inn on the Chesapeake Bay, along with two mornings of sailing instructions and a guided kayak tour of Westmoreland State Park.

A four night getaway in Richmond, complete with a five-hour river experience and fly fishing lessons on the James River.

Drawings will be held March 16, May 11, June 15 and August 10. Adults 21 and over can register online to win by visiting

  1. I haven't heard whether or not I won yet (so I guess I have not), but I DID just receive a big package in the mail today from the Virginia Tourism Corp.

    Unfortunately, it was just a map of the state and a very nice 2012 VA travel guide.
