The Commonwealth is bordered by Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital, and Maryland to the north; the Atlantic Ocean to the east; North Carolina and Tennessee to the south; and West Virginia and Kentucky to the west.

How do I get to Virginia?

Dulles International Airport and Reagan National Airport are both located in Virginia and all of the major airlines fly to both. You can also catch the Amtrak from NYC.

Additionally, road tripping through the United States is easy and convenient.

What are Virginia's most well-known attractions?

Virginia is famous for its fabulous beaches, great seafood, the beautiful Shenandoah National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway, among many other destinations and attractions.

When is the best time to visit Virginia?

Virginia’s weather has been described as a “Goldilocks Climate” – not too hot; not too cold – and is officially considered a humid, subtropical region due to winter frost. During the summer, it can get a bit “sticky” due to the abundant water along the East Coast with the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean as well as the Potomac, Rappahannock, York, and James rivers and their tributaries. But the air is cooler with less humidity in the mountains, on the average of 10 degrees cooler all four seasons.
