Heart of Appalachia

It’s always play time in Abingdon, whether the play is on stage at the historic Barter Theatre, or playing in the great outdoors, like biking the famous Virginia Creeper Trail. Shop, dine and play in the adorable downtown.


Virginia is indeed for lovers, and whether you’re a lover of history, culture, music or the expanse of the great outdoors, you’ll find your true passion in the Heart of Appalachia. Relive the courageous adventures of Daniel Boone as you explore the Wilderness Road, a trail that Boone blazed in 1775 through the Cumberland Gap. Visit one of the many museums to discover what life was like during the ages of coal mining and how the history has shaped Appalachia into what it is today. Follow the rhythms of time-honored musical traditions passed down through generations along the Crooked Road. Known as Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail, Crooked Road takes music lovers through the Appalachian Mountains from the Blue Ridge to the Coalfields region along Route 58, connecting major heritage music venues in the region including the Blue Ridge Music Center, Birthplace of Country Music Alliance and the Carter Family Fold. There are many outdoor excursions available year-round in Appalachia, whether you prefer to be on land or water. Observe the workings of a traditional farm, get your heart pumping on expert ATV trails or get in touch with nature on a scenic hiking trail, or have your breath taken away on one of the rapids during a canoeing, kayaking or rafting trip. Rekindle your passion for living the best life during your next visit to the Heart of Appalachia, and you’ll discover just how much there is to love.

There are people who enjoy sitting back and doing absolutely nothing. Then there are the true explorers at heart— the ones who find it hard to sit still because there’s simply too much to see, do and conquer. These people find their true calling in the Blue Ridge Highlands. Adventure awaits around every corner along the Blue Ridge Parkway, rich with hiking and biking trails and parks. Hike to the summit of Virginia’s highest peak, Mount Rogers, set up a picnic lunch at Hungry Mother State Park, and get an up close view of nature’s most beautiful wildlife. Spend a day on the New River, one of the American Heritage Rivers of the United States, where you can paddle, float, swim or boat to your heart’s content. Try your luck at casting the rod and reel and you may bring home a variety of freshwater game fish including bass, trout, walleye, muskellunge, crappie, bluegill, carp, flathead and channel catfish. If you’re seeking a cultural adventure, look no further than the surrounding towns to get your fill of music, theater and art galleries. Abingdon is a true cultural mecca, housing numerous arts, antiques, crafts and festivals. Blacksburg is famous for being the home of Virginia Tech and also known for housing a restored plantation, museums and art galleries and an 18-hole golf course. Music lovers appreciate a visit to Bristol, the birthplace of country music, and Roanoke is home to many popular museums and attractions. Explore all these areas and more during your next visit to the Blue Ridge Highlands, Virginia’s home for adventure tourism.

Shenandoah Valley


Your adoration for Virginia goes as high as the tallest mountain and as deep as the lowest valley. Use your senses to fully explore Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, and pretty soon, you’ll gain an even deeper appreciation for the region. Once you get a vision of the majestic mountaintops, rural farmlands and tremendous overlooks, you won’t want to take your eyes off of these spectacular sights even for a minute. Bordered by the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the Alleghenies to the west, the valley is known for its stunning views, especially along Skyline Drive, located inside Shenandoah National Park, and the Blue Ridge Parkway, which extends into North Carolina. The two byways are filled with scenic overlooks as well as hiking and biking trails. Next feel the coolness of the many caverns located in the valley. Down beneath the earth’s surface you’ll find magnificent expanses of caverns including Crystal, Endless, Grand, Shenandoah and Skyline. Luray Caverns, the largest in eastern America, features grand structures including Dream Lake, Frozen Fountain and the Great Stalacpipe Organ, the world’s largest musical instrument. Shenandoah Caverns is the only cavern in Virginia with an elevator and features soaring rooms like Long View Hall and chromatic wonders like Rainbow Lake. Hear stories of days long ago at one of Shenandoah’s incredible history sites including museums, plantations and interpretive centers. Listen to facts about pioneer settlement, politics and Civil War history shared in many ways that are appealing to visitors of all ages. The aromas found in the Shenandoah Valley are simply incomparable. There’s nothing like the scent of apples picked straight from the orchard or the sweet smell of fresh purple buds from a lavender farm. You’ll also do your fair share of sniffing, swirling and sipping at one of the valley’s many wineries located along the Shenandoah Valley Wine Trail, Virginia’s premier wine growing destination. Finally, use your impeccable sense of taste to explore some of the local restaurants in areas including Winchester, Front Royal, New Market, Woodstock, Luray and Harrisonburg. Farm-fresh fare is available all year long, and the region’s bountiful fruits, veggies and farm-raised meats are truly worth savoring. Your five senses will be in a blissful state of overdrive as you discover the many wonderful things to see, touch, hear, smell and taste in the Shenandoah Valley. For more information about the area, contact local Convention and Visitors Bureaus, identified by BOLD BLUE listings.

Northern Virginia


Some people prefer the fast-paced hustle and bustle of the big city while others are content with the simplified way of life found in the rural country. Whether you prefer a night on the town or a day of peaceful relaxation, you’ll find your little slice of perfection in Northern Virginia. Begin with a tour of our nation’s capital as you visit Washington D.C.’s many museums, monuments and other cultural attractions. The patriotic journey will continue as you cross the Potomac River for a living tour of our nation’s history at Arlington National Cemetery. Afterward, spend some time in Arlington’s unique urban villages dotted with one-of-a-kind boutiques, eclectic restaurants and world-class entertainment suited to fit visitors of varying ages. Add a little culture to your visit as you escape to Old Town Alexandria’s waterfront setting to partake in the vibrant music and arts scene. While you’re there, roam along King Street for every type of shopping under the sun. If you’re visiting on a weekend, be sure to check out one of the farmers’ markets, offering a rich variety of locally grown vegetables and fruits as well as meats, eggs, jams, cheese and baked goods. Slow the pace down a bit as you head to Virginia Hunt Country, including the towns of Middleburg, The Plains and Warrenton. Stroll along the lush pastures of a pristine horse farm while admiring the gorgeous setting around you and perhaps making some new equestrian friends. Bring tranquility to an entirely new level as you sip a glass of Virginia’s finest at one of the surrounding wineries. It’s been said that Virginia’s grapes simply don’t grow in ugly places, and this statement reigns true along the perfectly manicured vines and the naturally pleasant vistas which overlook them. Find the mix of city and country that best suits your desires, and plan an exciting and laid back visit to Northern Virginia. For local highlights, events and points of interest, contact the town, city or county tourism office or the Convention and Visitors Bureaus, identified by BOLD BLUE listings.

follow in the footsteps of marines at the national museum of the marine corps The National Museum of the Marine Corps celebrates 241 years of United States Marine Corps history. Come follow in the footsteps of Marines: from boot camp to the boot prints left in the sands of the Pacific Islands, in the snow of the Chosin Reservoir, on Vietnam’s Hill 881, and the continued global fight against terror.

Southern Virginia


There’s a reason they call it “Southern hospitality,” and you’ll soon discover the true meaning of friendly faces and cheerful spirits at the southern part of Virginia. Much of this region of the Commonwealth is exactly like you’d picture. Scenic byways lead to farms passed down through generations, tobacco fields and even some vineyards. Folks like to sit on their front porches, sipping sweet tea or lemonade and watching the cars pass by. Local inns entice guests to sit back and relax, and quaint restaurants serve up generous helpings of the best Southern cooking you could imagine—hot, buttery biscuits or cornbread, crispy fried chicken and perhaps a sweet bowl of corn pudding or fruit pie topped with vanilla ice cream for dessert. However, a lot of the area has been transformed, presenting a fresh, new perspective of the land. Old railroad beds have been changed into new bike trails, and the history of what used to be can now be seen in some of the area’s fascinating museums like Martinsville’s Virginia Museum of Natural History. One of the most popular pastimes is spending a day on the 50,000-acre Buggs Island Lake, where many people go for fishing, swimming, boating and other water sports. If you prefer life in the fast lane, you can watch car races take place at three different speedways. Regardless of your preference for traditional Southern living or revitalized recreation, Southern Virginia is worth exploring. For more information about the area, contact local Convention and Visitors Bureaus, identified by BOLD BLUE listings.

Central Virginia


To experience a diverse mix of our nation’s past combined with the best aspects of today, head to the center of the Commonwealth. Affectionately known as the heart of Virginia, Central Virginia encompasses a wide range of places and experiences—all central to the history, beauty and culture that one seeks during the optimal travel adventure. Richmond holds the key to Virginia’s success, both past and present. The city is filled with historic landmarks, sites and attractions including the former White House of the Confederacy and Virginia’s state Capitol, designed by Thomas Jefferson. Experience the big city life at Richmond’s premier malls and shopping centers, or pop in the locally-owned boutiques and eclectic eateries of Carytown. Whether you explore the town by foot, segway or trolley, you’ll have a truly memorable time seeing all that you can see in Virginia’s capital. Northwest of Richmond, you’ll find Charlottesville, rich with history, academia, culture and viticulture. The area is home to the University of Virginia, founded by Thomas Jefferson, as well as Monticello, Jefferson’s breathtaking home, which has been named a World Heritage Site. Another mark that Jefferson left on Charlottesville is his appreciation for wine. Because of his efforts, the area is now considered Virginia’s Wine Country, featuring more than 30 vineyards from Charlottesville to Williamsburg. Along with these perks, Charlottesville is known for its rich arts and entertainment venues, its incomparable dining scene and its never-ending assortment of outdoor activities available year round. For more information about the area, contact local Convention and Visitors Bureaus, identified by BOLD BLUE listings.

Chesapeake Bay


Think back to the days of childhood when every precious moment of sunlight meant that you had to be outside playing, exploring or simply basking. Rekindle your passion for all things outdoors along the spectacular Chesapeake Bay. Otherwise known as Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula or River Country, this region stretches from Colonial Beach to Gloucester, and the areas in between are brimming with history, recreation and plenty of opportunities for families to take advantage of lifelong memories. Step foot on the soil that witnessed landmarks in history: the births of both George Washington and Robert E. Lee, the first permanent English settlements in America and numerous Civil War battles. The area is also home to the lands of Pamunkey and Mattaponi, Virginia’s only Indian reservations. Take part in the plethora of recreation activities available, both on water and land. Rent a boat or bring your own to discover the pristine scenery past the shoreline. Hop on a fishing charter and find out who can bring home the day’s most impressive catch. Pack a picnic lunch and set off on one of the area’s many hiking trails to peruse the area by foot. You may catch views of peaceful wildlife and rare birds, including American bald eagles, which can be found around the Caledon Natural Area. Of course many families are content staying on the beach all day, soaking up the sun and seeing who can build the largest sand castle. You’re sure to feel just like a kid again each time you visit the naturally splendid Chesapeake Bay. For more information about the area, contact local Convention and Visitors Bureaus, identified by BOLD BLUE listings.

Coastal Virginia & Hampton Roads

Coastal Virginia & Hampton Roads


Though many vacationers flock to Coastal Virginia to soak up the sun, stick their toes in the sand and hit the waves, there’s much to be seen past Hampton Roads’ many shorelines and plenty to do all seasons of the year. Norfolk, a modern port city nestled where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean, is vibrantly bursting with culture found in the lush parks which host festivals year-round, the quality museums, the incredible entertainment venues and the impeccable culinary scene. Just a short ferry ride away, Portsmouth is the place to go to scope out local art, peruse historic neighborhoods and spend a day with the kids at the largest children’s museum in the state. Outdoor lovers will find their solitude in Chesapeake along 22 miles of fresh and salt waterways. The Dismal Swamp Canal is a perfect place for kayaking or canoeing or simply spotting rare bird species. Relive history in the Historic Triangle, made up of Jamestown, Williamsburg and

Yorktown. Visit the places that helped our nation to take root and the places that shaped it into what it is today. Colonial Williamsburg is known as the world’s largest living history museum, and neighboring Jamestown features replicas of the original fort and ships that were used to root the English colonists here in 1607. Not all of the area is steeped in history; visit Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA to feel like you’ve traveled to other lands or simply to make a big splash. Of course a trip here wouldn’t quite be complete without a peek at the Atlantic Ocean. Virginia Beach is the ultimate place for surfing, festivals, family fun and so much more, so take a stroll down the three-mile boardwalk, play a round of puttputt, and stick your toes deep into the sand. For more information about the area, contact local Convention and Visitors Bureaus identified by BOLD BLUE listings.

Eastern Shore


When visitors cross over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, a sudden tranquility washes over them. The essence of time no longer matters, the feeling of hurriedness disappears, and they’re left with a blissful relaxation that can only be explained in one way: they’ve crossed over to Shore time. Made up of 70 miles of land, the Eastern Shore is surrounded by water on either side—the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Chesapeake Bay on the other. The area is comprised by natural beaches and salt marshes, forests and quaint farms, country roads and adorable waterfront towns filled with friendly faces, salty air and some of the best seafood around. For years the Shore’s fishermen and watermen have provided fresh catches of fish, shrimp, crab, clams and oysters that can be found on the menus of most Eastern Shore eateries. Of course the area is also known for its selection of farm fresh veggies, so be sure to stop at one of the roadside stands to get your fill of juicy watermelon and cantaloupe, sweet corn and ripe tomatoes. If the weather is nice, paddle along the bay via kayak and journey to a nearby winery for an afternoon tasting, or catch a round of golf at a pristine club. Many flock to Chincoteague each summer for the famous pony roundup, but wild horses can be spotted along the towns of Chincoteague and Assateague at any time. A ferry ride away is the quiet and carless island of Tangier. Rent a golf cart to check out the island’s restaurants and shops, and pay a visit to their history museum to get a true sense of the area. The towns of Cape Charles and Onancock are perfect for spending the day. Pop into the art galleries to get a sense of the local talent, find the perfect souvenir at one of the cute shops, and have an unforgettable meal at an adorable restaurant. If you choose to spend all of your vacation here, you’ll be greeted to Victorian bed & breakfasts with wraparound porches and the most hospitable innkeepers you’ll ever meet. For more information about the area, contact local Convention and Visitors Bureaus, identified by BOLD BLUE listings.
