Shenandoah National Park is also on the Parkway, and is a great spot to take your family or spouse if you’re craving some nature.

    We’ve already mentioned Virginia Beach but if you’re looking for a different flavor than what the rest of Virginia has to offer, check out VB. You have everything from your typical boardwalk entertainment to fine dining, and you’ll be able to find fresh caught seafood everywhere. Try the oysters, you won’t regret it.

  • Natural Features

  • The landscape of Virginia is stunning and one of the main reasons so many tourists love visiting year after year.

  • History

  • Virginia might possibly be THE most historic state in the United States. Originally the wealthiest colony of the British Empire, the planters & farmers that dominated the state began to form democratic & republican ideas and were one of the founding 13 states of America.

    Fun Fact: Virginia is the birthplace of more U.S. Presidents than any other state (8).

    As one of the oldest states in the country, it’s home to some of the oldest schools in the country, like College of William & Mary, signed into charter by King William III way back in 1693!

    As soon as you drive through Virginia you’ll get a sense of the rich history that permeates the land. Virginia was home to the capital of the confederacy, Richmond VA, today a thriving little city full of history and culture.

    It doesn't matter which part of Virginia you’re visiting. You’ll bump into history here, there, and everywhere and sometimes in the most unlikely places.

    If you love to mix some culture and nostalgia into your travels, than you picked the right state with Virginia.

  • Things to do

George & Martha’s family home in Mount Vernon, VA is bursting with history of our country’s founding, and specific info about the 1st President of the United States.

    Chesapeake Bay near Virginia Beach is a wonderful spot to explore nature and check out one of the country’s largest estuaries. There’s obviously mouth watering seafood joints around the Bay, so visit one after you spend the day exploring!

    The Civil War Trails are  phenomenal and the best way to learn about the history of America, and the trials & tribulations that resulted in the Civil War.

    Roanoke & Williamsburg are also good places to go to get your history fix.

  • Weather

  • Virginia’s weather varies wildly, with snowy winters and really humid, hot summers. You’ll definitely want to dress lightly and pack a swimsuit if you’re visiting in the summer, and bundle up in the Winter. That goes without saying!

    Fall is absolutely gorgeous and showcases Virginia’s rugged natural beauty with changing leaves, crisp fall air, and cool but not freezing cold temperatures.

    No matter what month you’re planning on visiting, make sure to check the forecast as Virginia’s weather can be unpredictable.

    Pack warm clothes for Fall & Winter if you’re thinking about any outdoor activities. It’s always better to be prepared & bundled up, than not have enough protection and be regretting it later!

  • Food and Drink

  • Virginia has a variety of phenomenal restaurants & awesome breweries/wineries for you to check out. Oysters are actually the oldest food in the state, when English settlers pulled up fresh oysters out of the James River in 1607. Today, you don’t have to go fishing for oysters to enjoy them.
