Are you planning a trip to Virginia for an upcoming continuing medical education (CME) conference? Then you should check out this blog post for some recommendations of places to visit, eat & drink, and shop.
Virginia has deep roots in history and tradition; it is the birthplace of America. The English settlers established their first colony in the new world in Virginia in 1607. Virginia has been an epicenter for most major American dramas- The Revolutionary War, Civil War, and the American civil rights movement.
Virginia is also full of diverse natural beauty that tourists can enjoy!
Virginia weather can be described as a humid subtropical climate. Peak tourist season is considered to be from May to September as this is the ideal time to visit with family. December is considered an off-season, when prices and crowds will be lower, and yet you will still be able to enjoy a lot of fun-filled activities.
Virginia is well connected with major highways, rail, and airports. You might want to rent a car in this state, as it will be easier to commute whether you are travelling locally, or long distances. You can rent a car and book your flights+ hotels at priceline.com.
