From the Virginia Arts Festival & Virginia Opera in Norfolk, get two tickets ($25 for Section 4, $45 for Section 3, or $60 for Section 2 -- a $50, $90, and $120 value, respectively) to the world premiere of "Rappahannock County," a new musical production about life during the War Between the States. Inspired by diary entries, letters, and personal accounts from the people of the time, this piece utilizes more than 20 songs to tell their moving stories.

Join Assaggi Osteria April 9th in McLean for their annual Spring Wine Festival instead! At this year's festival, your ticket will allow you and your friends to sample over 50 Italian wines for just $15 (normally $30), plus get an additional $15 off any case of wine or dinner at Assaggi Osteria.

Trade in your walk through the mall for a spectacular bike ride from Brunswick, MD, across the Potomac, to the quaint European-styled, Harpers Ferry in West Virginia—bustling with historic shops and sites. You’ll get all-day use of one of their spiffy beach cruisers, a helmet to keep your noggin safe, and a national park brochure for you to set out on your very own adventure at your own pace, without annoying tour guides slowing you down or speeding you up.  $17.50 for a Self-Guided Bike Tour from Brunswick to Harpers Ferry ($35 value)
