Virginia, a southeastern U.S. state, stretches from the Chesapeake Bay to the Appalachian Mountains, with a long Atlantic coastline. Virginia was named for England’s “Virgin Queen,” Elizabeth I. It's one of the 13 original colonies, with historic landmarks including Monticello, founding father Thomas Jefferson’s iconic Charlottesville plantation. Eight United States Presidents were born in Virginia: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, William Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor, and Woodrow Wilson.
This is the first, largest and most prosperous colony on the books in the USA; it’s also, as the local saying goes, “for lovers.” History and romance go hand in hand here, where rolling hills and sunny beaches give way to charming towns and boardwalks along with the polished manors of presidents and memorial sites.
On your Virginia holiday, the most difficult decision might be selecting from the many tantalizing options: history with a modern twist, breathtaking natural beauty, shopping at brand-name outlets and boutiques, soaking up the sun along miles of pristine coastline, savoring the local produce and sipping award-winning wines.
Shenandoah National Park
Despite its proximity to the nation’s bustling, urban capital, Shenandoah is a little piece of paradise in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Blessed with more than 60 peaks, 100 species of trees and countless animal species, it’s the crowning glory of the Appalachian range. But this long, narrow strip of concentrated nature is perhaps best known for its knockout scenery, with millions flocking to it –particularly in spring and fall – to witness the kaleidoscope of blooming flowers and changing leaves.
