Travel in Virginia is all about LOVE – pure and simple. Always has been. Always will be. When you think about it, that’s what travel is all about – being together and sharing good times, doing those things you love to do. And there’s no better place to do that than Virginia.
Virginia is a place that engages all the senses – and maybe the sense that is making the most news these days is taste. Now with more than 200 wineries, Virginia is one of the world’s top emerging wine destinations. The wines are winning awards and the wineries themselves are fun places to visit. Virginia food is also at the top of its game, with superb restaurants and food sources including artisanal cheese makers, pick-your-own farms and of course food festivals in nearly every corner of the Commonwealth.
Virginia’s rich history is on display during the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War and Emancipation. 2013 is a big year for Civil War anniversaries in Virginia with lots of commemorative activities, tours and re-enactments. New programming and interpretation at standard favorites such as Colonial Williamsburg, Richmond and Northern Virginia's Fairfax make visits to those places a new experience.
While here, discover the cultural heritage of roots music and craftsmanship in Virginia through Heartwood: Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Gateway. You’ll hear the sound of guitars, fiddles, banjoes and mandolins echo through the mountainsides and valleys while potters, weavers and luthiers turn out beautiful works.
Spend time with us and you’ll discover why love is at the heart of every Virginia vacation.
