Virginia’s rich history and spectacular scenery make it a perfect playground for your holiday. Don’t miss its award-winning wines.

From soaring mountains to beach resorts along the Atlantic coast, Virginia is diverse enough to feed every passion. And with more than 300 wineries and 200-plus craft breweries, it has something for every taste.

Discover outdoor adventures, mouthwatering restaurants and winding wine trails.

And did we mention Virginia was home to historical figures like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson? This land also saw several hard-fought battles during the Civil War, marked today by historic sites and trails; six National Parks reflect on these events.

Colonial Williamsburg brings 18th-century heritage to life through historical re-enactments, tours and museum collections. Nearby, gain a glimpse into America’s origins at the first permanent English colony — Jamestown — and Yorktown, where the American Revolution was won.

Getting Around

Get a feel for Virginia by viewing the map below, and explore a map of the state here.

A widespread Amtrak network means you can reach cities like Lynchburg, Norfolk, Roanoke and Fredericksburg with relative ease.

Get out and explore Virginia’s 38 state parks, hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, and winding rivers and tributaries. Shenandoah National Park, near Luray in the Blue Ridge Mountains, is a recreational gem covering 200,000 acres of protected lands.

Annual Events

Despite its name, the Virginia International Tattoo in Norfolk doesn’t involve getting any ink. It’s a massive showcase of marching bands, drill teams, dancers, choirs and bagpipers over four days of performances in April.

The longstanding Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival marks its storied history (90 years and counting) when over 250,000 attendees descend on Winchester for nine days of revelry.

The Crooked Road, southwest Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail, is a destination for traditional music lovers year-round, but even more so during the nine-day Mountains of Music Homecoming in June, a celebration with concerts and performances across the region.

Since 1974, beachgoers have flocked to the Neptune Festival in late summer and early fall for a series of 40-plus events revelling in the culture of Virginia Beach.

What’s New in Virginia

Look for American Evolution in 2019, a commemoration of the 400 th anniversary of key historical events that shaped America’s beginnings. Special programmes, activities and projects will mark pivotal occurrences from 1619.
