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.
