If you and your family love to learn about history, you're going to get a real treat in Virginia. As the very first colony that became part of the United States, it has a long history that can be traced in landmarks throughout its countryside. Here you will find old English settlements, Civil War battlefields, and some real game changers in the historical sense, such as the court house in which slavery was abolished. Eight United States presidents have come from Virginia, so the state must be doing something right!
Although public transport is pretty good throughout the state, there's nothing quite like the freedom of having your own vehicle to explore from. The Blue Ridge Mountains provide what feels like the whole of Nature's bounty for you to stretch your legs in, indulge in a little hiking, or cycling, and generally take in the great outdoors.
Look out for the wildlife, because there's a lot of it, and sometimes it has teeth and claws! There's a lot of excellent accommodation in Virginia Beach, but it certainly isn't the only place with hotels and places to stay.
Elsewhere, Virginia's wineries and vineyards are plentiful, and many are open to the public or for guided tours; a slightly more unusual day trip.
If good food is what you seek when on holiday, you'll be pleased to learn that Virginians like to eat well, and whether it's fine dining and gourmet at Chesapeake Bay, or a hotdog and deep-fried beer at the State Fair (with plenty of arts, crafts, music and other food of course), you'll probably be able to find something to touch your palate. Seafood, of course, is particularly good along the coast, and really shouldn't be missed.
It's easy to obtain a hire car at any of Virginia's three major airports, Norfolk International Airport, Richmond International Airport, or Roanoke Regional Airport, and just take off into the beautifully green and welcoming countryside. It doesn't really matter what time of year you go, either, because it has a very balanced climate all year round. No nasty snowstorms, generally, and no other horrifying American weather. Just lush countryside, loads of activities, and good food and hospitality.
