So, my family and I will be attending a wedding in Culpepper this October. We decided to try to make it a week long vacation, and go to virginia beach and/or williamsburg the week before or after and stay at one of timeshare resorts (my in-laws have oodles of TS points to use).
the weather around here in ohio the last few years has still been very warm in october. has it been the same there? also, do many places close down during the non-busy season, and if so, at about what date do they usually shut down?
basically, is it a good time of year to visit? we like the idea of missing the busy summer crowd, but we'd like to enjoy the beach, and even the water if possible. are there many beaches where the shelling is good? how far of a drive is assateague? would that make for a good day trip?
