Virginia at a Glance
Metro Richmond has over 13,000 available hotel rooms, from five-star hotels like The
Jefferson to economy accommodations for travellers on a budget.
From theme parks to Colonial and Civil War history to world-class
NASCAR racing, Richmond, Virginia is a unique location for the business and leisure
traveler. Filled with a sense of old world charm, Richmond's tree-lined streets frame the
historic monuments dedicated to heroes from all walks of life.
Sited in an area rich with history and easily accessible via interstate
to many attractions you could visit Richmond anytime, but to make the most of the city try
to come during the Spring or Autumn when the weather is at its most pleasant.
Virginia Beach is right next to Williamsburg - home of the Old Country and Busch Gardens -
making the area an ideal vacation spot.
It turns out that Virginia Beach is an older, smaller version of Myrtle
Beach, complete with the usual suspects - saltwater taffy, t-shirt shops and calabash
buffets. The big difference between the two areas, besides size, is rejuvenation.
The best time to visit Virginia Beach is during the summer months. Keep
in mind that it will be very crowded during this time of year, and that most hotels will
be booked to full capacity - so book ahead.
You can easily stay in the historic area and sample the delights of a bygone age at one of
the Colonial Taverns; these properties in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg are
exquisitely furnished with 18th century reproductions.
Sited in Virginias famed Historic Triangle alongside Jamestown
and Yorktown, Colonial Williamsburg is the largest living museum in America. But, beyond
the obvious charms of time traveling with costumed guides, this gem of a town offers
shopping, nightlife, nearby Busch Gardens, and outdoor activities galore.
Summer is the busiest time of year as visitors come to visit and
experience the many historic attractions in and around the area.
