Whether you can’t wait to re-enact history at Colonial Williamsburg or just want to kick it on the beach (yes, it has them!) your Virginia holiday is sure to be memorable.
Whether you’re travelling alone or with the rugrats, you’ve got to stop by Colonial Williamsburg. This living museum recreates life in 18th-century Virginia, and features restored buildings and actors in period costume re-enacting the daily life of the times. However, the biggest attractions in Williamsburg, as far as kids are concerned, are the Busch Gardens amusement park and the Water Country water park.
Outdoor-lovers on Virginia getaways can visit the Shenandoah Valley or hike the scenic trails of the Appalachian Mountains. Prefer to stay closer to civilisation? Try a round of golf on a world-class course, or explore the eerie subterranean world of the Luray Caverns.
Surf’s up! Virginia has several km of white sand beaches, perfect for swimming, surfing or sunning. During the summer months, the oceanfront area features live outdoor entertainment, and the area's bars are hopping year-round. Finally, a holiday in Virginia wouldn't be complete without a visit to Washington, D.C. You can book one of Wotif’s Virginia Beach car hire options and day trip out to the White House, the Washington Monument and the Smithsonian Museums.
Shopping is considered a sport in Virginia, so start your engines. Every city on your itinerary will have at least one major shopping centre with designer boutiques, national brands and local specialty shops. Bargain-hunters, head for the outlets, where you can find designer clothing and accessories at enormous discounts. Leesburg and Williamsburg are both extremely popular discount shopping destinations.
After a full day of sightseeing and shopping, get ready to unbuckle your belt and sample some of the very best food Virginia has to offer. Head inland to Charlottesville to satiate your taste buds with a little bit of every type of cuisine, or hit up Richmond for late-night cafes full of pastries and sweet coffees. Here’s a secret: Virginia sits right on the ocean, so yeah, seafood is kind of a big deal here. Area chefs also have access to wonderful, locally raised meats and produce, and the result is an exciting and eclectic cuisine. Whether you want to get your mitts on five-star fine dining or beachfront food stands, this state is sure to please.
And once the sun sets, Virginia Beach is hands-down the place to party. Its world-famous bars and nightclubs will keep you dancing until the wee hours. From salsa to reggae, from ’80s hits to electronic dance music, you'll find it here. Not up for a shindig? That’s OK. For a more relaxed night, make new friends at oceanfront clubs or just grab a pint with the locals at a quiet tavern.
