State Overview

Virginia is for Lovers - Pure and Simple

Virginia is a destination where visitors can completely connect with those they love, doing the things they love to do on vacation. A vacation in Virginia is as diverse and beautiful as the state itself, with warm sandy beaches and the longest boardwalk in the country, and more than 3,000 miles of scenic roadways traversing majestic mountains, peaceful countryside and coastal beauty.

Iconic historic sites such as Monticello and Mount Vernon dot the scenic byways alongside quaint small towns, more than 230 wineries, diverse arts and culture, and world-class resorts, hotels, and inns. Outdoor adventure in Virginia is as tame or hard-core as you like. Golfers will delight in Williamsburg, one of the world’s great golf destinations and Cascades at The Omni Homestead Resort, one of the world’s great mountain courses, while other outdoorsmen may take to hiking or rock-climbing along the Appalachian Trail, or whitewater rafting and kayaking miles of river.

Great music awaits along The Crooked Road: Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail. Winding nearly 300 miles through scenic southwest Virginia, musicians, festivals and luthiers carry on the deeply-rooted traditions of old-time Appalachian and country music. Impromptu jam sessions occur on front porches and inside general stores any time of the day or night, welcoming music lovers to join in the toe-tapping.
