Welcome to Virginia’s Retreat Passport Program!

We are excited you have chosen to plan your trip to the Virginia’s Retreat region.
Click this link to download your Virginia’s Retreat Passport, and it will be time to travel through the 12 communities that make up this region, and to find your own exciting adventure! As you explore Central and Southern Virginia, stop by some of the special spots listed, get your passport stamped, and receive a reward of the Limited Edition Virginia’s Retreat Patch upon completion!
To begin your adventure and gain the reward:

  • Visit at least one location per community listed in your passport and ask for your Virginia’s Retreat Passport stamp at those locations.
  • Collect at least one stamp per passport from at least 3 communities and earn a patch! To receive additional patches, continue your adventure to 3 additional communities–so, visit them all! It’s time to travel!
  • Special note – if you are group of travelers, each one needs their own Passport, then everyone gets a Limited Edition Virginia’s Retreat Patch!
  • Look for a “Reward Center” located in each of the 12 participating communities and present your passport to receive your limited edition Virginia’s Retreat patch!
    Please note: Not all “Reward Centers” are open 7 days a week – so if you complete the passport with the 3 required stamps, either check the passport for hours of operation and visit the nearest “Reward Center;” or mailing the passport to:
    Virginia’s Retreat
    19 Bolling Brook Street
    Petersburg VA 23803

    The Limited Edition Virginia’s Retreat patch will be mailed to you, along with your original passport as a future guide and keepsake.
