Virginia’s history, diversity and beauty make it one of the USA’s must-visit East Coast states. Not only is Virginia the birthplace of the United States, but it is also known as the birthplace of country music, American viticulture and distilling. Home to eight of America’s current Presidents, the Commonwealth is a truly American destination.

Three things we love about Virginia

1. Home to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Skyline Drive, Virginia’s Blue Ridge and iconic Shenandoah Valley are a must for road trippers and nature lovers alike, and the region being home to 540 miles of the Appalachian Trail, it’s the perfect place for hikers to stretch their legs.

2. Virginia is the Birthplace of the United States. Visitors can step back in time and explore the colony of Jamestown; now a live archaeological site, learn about colonial life in the 18th century capital Williamsburg; now a living museum, or explore acres of Civil War history in the Commonwealth’s six Civil War-oriented National Parks.

3. Sip, Swirl and slurp your way through Virginia’s numerous wine regions, home to over 250 wineries before tucking in to the Commonwealth’s eight types of native oyster fresh from the waters of the Chesapeake Bay.
