For natural beauty, I would choose Shenandoah National Park.

For beaches, I would choose Virginia Beach.

For history, I would choose Williamsburg and Charlottesville.

Early September is an ideal time to visit! Kids have gone back to school, the traffic is a bit lighter and the summer's heat and humidity (should) have bidden farewell.

Virginia is a large state, with lots to see and do. The Virginia Travel Guide breaks it down into nine distinct regions (www.virginia.org) , so have you pinpointed which region(s) you'd like to visit yet?

For example, the Hampton Roads region extends from Williamsburg to Virginia Beach and is chock-full of history (Revolutionary War, Civil War, America's Founding), scenic beauty (the Oceanfront, River Beaches, thousands of acres of park lands) and culture (a wide variety of performing arts venues and outdoor concerts, even in September).

If you're in the area September 8th and 9th, Bay Days will be happening in Hampton. It's a huge celebration of the Chesapeake Bay---its people, the seafood, the ecology and history---with music, seafood, crafters and lots of fun.

Want to enjoy Virginia's scenic byways by car? The Virginia Department of Transportation has a website offering some gorgeous drives.


Whatever part of Virginia you choose, remember our motto, "Virginia is for Lovers"!
