Want to visit Virginia, USA?

"The old dominion state"

Located midway between New York and Florida, Virginia is the gateway to the South and is steeped with history.

Virginia has a wealth of themed parks and townships. Visit Colonial Williamsburg to experience what life was like in an 18th-century town and just a short distance away is historic Jamestown where you can explore the first permanent settlement in North America. There are numerous national parks in the state dedicated to Revolutionary War and Civil war battles. If your idea of a great vacation includes sand and surf, sun and seafood, Virginia's beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay are waiting for you. Or, if you want a relaxing day, tour one of Virginia's over seventy five vineyards.

From mile after mile of sandy Atlantic beaches through rolling green countryside to the misty Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah National Park, Virginia offers its visitors spectacular scenery in every season. Outdoor enthusiasts can hike the Appalachian Trail, go kayaking, search for whales & dolphins off Virginia Beach, and sample Virginia wines at more than 85 farm wineries. Add to this the opportunity to experience the whole scope of American history by visiting historic sites from Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in America - and now preparing to celebrate its 400th anniversary in 2007 - to Williamsburg, the 18th century colonial capital, and Yorktown, site of the British surrender at the end of the American War of Independence.

Dream about indulging in some soft adventure, visiting theme parks, playing spectacular golf courses and enjoying world class shopping and you have some idea of the memorable experiences that await you in Virginia.

Civil War history buffs should request a copy of the Virginia Civil War Trails brochure.

Richmond

Richmond

Founded in 1737 at the furthest navigable point on the James River, Richmond remained a small outpost until just before the end of the colonial era when, being vulnerable to British attack, the township was moved fifty miles inland. Richmond subsequently flourished and when the Civil War broke out it was named the capital of the Confederacy. After the war ended Richmond was devastated. Rebuilding, however, was quick, and the city became the capital of Virginia with its economy becoming among the strongest in the South. Today Richmond is a remarkably elegant city, with an extensive inventory of architecturally significant older buildings alongside its modern office towers.

Williamsburg

Williamsburg

Virginia's single-largest historical attraction is Williamsburg, the re-creation of an 18th-century American city, the former capital of Virginia from 1699 to 1780.

A few miles southwest of Williamsburg is Historic Jamestown, site of the first permanent English settlement and now a living-history museum. The Yorktown Battlefield and Yorktown Victory Centre are a few miles east in Yorktown, site of the battle that ended the war for independence from England.

Charlottesville

Charlottesville

Nestled in the foothills of the legendary Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is a captivating blend of colourful history, distinctive architecture, Southern hospitality and small city sophistication.

This is a very special place, home to Thomas Jefferson and his legacies, a great university and his home, Monticello. Both are architectural treasures included on the World Heritage List and the whole area is renowned for its year round natural beauty.
