Virginia, located in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, is a spectacular and historic state. With a long stretch of coastline along the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean, there are plenty of sandy beaches to explore. The Blue Ridge Mountains provide stunning views for hikers and campers alike.

If you're looking for a dose of history, visit Colonial Williamsburg where you can explore historical buildings from America's colonial period or take in one of our many battlefields. Luray Caverns is also an excellent spot to learn about underground formations and stalactites - it even houses its own Gothic chapel!

A fascinating fact about Virginia is that Jamestown was the first permanent English colony in North America, founded on May 14th 1607. It's also home to 8 U.S Presidents including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison who all have their homes open for visitors!
