Hi, We are going to Washington and then touring Virginia for 14 days. We are on our first trip can anyone give us some touring ideas. We are 60 and reasonably active and don't like to many days in the car. We like historical sites, scenery and beach

Loudoun County wine country! Beautiful scenery, some wineries are better than others, of course. But that's the case anywhere.

When you come into Richmond you should stop at the Convention center on 5th street between Marshall and Broad St. They have all the info you need for your adventure. You can pick up alot of brochures including Richmond.com and the Richmond travel guide. Since you are in your 60's you might appreciate a visit at the Jefferson Hotel. There you will see the famous steps that everyone saw in the movie "Gone With The Wind." And everyone thought the movie was done there but the truth is the person that wrote the book stayed at this Hotel and it gave them the inspiration to describe it in their book. You will love the inside of this historical Hotel and brunch There would be a plus.A Lovely endless buffet. Enjoy your stay
