Many people do not have access to 401ks and other retirement options through their employers, but the US Treasury has introduced a new way for individuals to start saving for retirement. The myRA (My Retirement Account) was introduced in December of 2014 and offers many of the same perks and benefits as a traditional retirement account.

Here are some of the benefits of this new program…

- Make after-tax contributions to an IRA account through reoccurring payroll deductions

- You can deposit money from multiple employers

- You can carry the account from one job to the next

- Contributions are securely invested in the U.S. Treasury savings bond and earns interest at the same rate as investments in the government securities fund available to federal employees

- The maximum annual contribution is $5,500 ($6,500 for those 50 and older) as with all Roth IRA’s

- Income limits apply

- After-tax contributions can be withdrawn anytime without tax or penalty.

- myRA accounts can be used for 30 years or until the balance reaches $15,000… your investment then gets rolled over to a private sector Roth IRA where the individual can continue to grow their investment.

For more information about the myRA, visit the US Treasury website here.

Treetop Adventures...

If you enjoy a good thrill, soaring through the treetops while harnessed to a zipline wire is a perfect way to get your adrenaline going. There are several zip-lining locations throughout Virginia and North Carolina, including Carolina Zip-lining Canopy Tours in Westfield, NC and Bear Mountain Zip-line in Luray, VA.

From Lexington VA to Ashville NC and throughout Virginia and North Carolina, put a spooky spin on history by taking a ghost tour of your favorite city. You can find one in almost any city you visit and it's great way to get a new perspective on how people lived and died throughout history.

Not your standard movie theater...

Virginia and North Carolina are littered with different types of movie theaters to check out. Drive-Ins, independent cinemas and remodeled classic stage theaters are nestled in small towns and big cities through the states. From the Grandin Theater in Roanoke Virginia, where you can catch main stream movies along with numerous independent selections to Hull's Drive In in Lexington where you can travel back in time and watch those summer blockbusters from the comfort of your own car.
