Virginia Beach, the state’s most populous city, is home to Chesapeake Bay, the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, and a three-mile oceanfront boardwalk.
Luray Caverns in Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge National Parkway are also must-see destinations, filled with miles of breathtaking natural beauty.
Richmond, the state capital, features the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the trendy shops of Carytown, and Kings Dominion, one of the world’s most famous amusement parks.
