The Best Weekend Getaway Destinations in Virginia

Are you looking for a city trip, a walk down memory lane, an outdoor adventure, or a beach break? Virginia has it all!

  • 1. Richmond

    Richmond is the capital of Virginia, and one of America’s oldest major cities. The city has a rich history and many well-preserved landmarks, such as homes, churches, cemeteries, and battlefields, that tell the tales of the past. Take it all in during a guided tour, or opt for a self-guided walking tour. The Richmond experience doesn’t stop there, though: the city also has a hip and happening cultural scene. Stroll around the farmers’ market, visit craft breweries, enjoy fashion and shopping, and admire incredible street art along the way.

  • 2. Williamsburg

    This colonial town is Virginia’s most popular historic destination, and rightly so. Williamsburg, the country’s largest living museum, transports you back into 18th-century life. The whole town stays in character 24 hours a day, meaning you’re not just visiting historic buildings, but also interacting with people and experiencing what life was like back in the day. It’s a truly unique experience and a must for anyone with a serious interest in national history.

  • 3. Shenandoah National Park

    This national park’s diverse forest, wetlands, waterfalls, and rocky peaks are home to many bird species, deer, squirrels, and even black bears. Follow Skyline Drive, running 105 miles down the sanctuary, and enjoy stunning panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, surrounded by the Shenandoah Valley. Hike one of the many trails, or enjoy a picnic overlooking forested peaks. Whether you have a few hours or a whole weekend to spend here, a visit to the park will surely make for a memorable experience.

  • 4. Virginia Beach

    The coastal city of Virginia Beach features three beaches, each with their own character. Resort Beach is perfect for biking or rollerblading down the iconic boardwalk, past oceanfront bars and restaurants. And relaxing Chesapeake Bay Beach offers a more tranquil experience, with shallow waters along a calm shore. Meanwhile, secluded Sandbridge Beach offers scenic nature and opportunities for spotting wildlife at Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge.

Things to Do During Your Weekend Getaway in Virginia

If you’re looking for an unforgettable weekend getaway in Virginia, these are the top experiences.

  • 1. Living history

    Virginia, the birthplace of America, is steeped in history and tradition. In the Historic Triangle, consisting of Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown, you can relive the nation’s history. After seeing the living museum in Williamsburg, be sure to visit the other two towns. Jamestown houses the remains of North America’s first permanent English settlement, and Yorktown features the Revolutionary War’s last battle site.

  • 2. The great outdoors

    Virginia is the perfect destination for mountain lovers. One-fourth of the famous Appalachian Trail is within state boundaries, and includes the iconic Shenandoah National Park as well as other must-see parks. Experience stunning mountain views, many forms of outdoor recreation, and Appalachia’s unique culture, art, music, and wine.

  • 3. Beaches

    Located conveniently close to several cities, Virginia’s beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay offer plenty of opportunities for relaxing and entertainment. Enjoy seaside fun and food fresh from the ocean, or explore the waterways and coastal forests and marshlands.

  • 4. Wine, spirit, and beer tasting

    Virginia is the birthplace of American spirits, being where the first batch of whiskey was distilled. It also produces several award-winning wines. Stroll through vineyards or enjoy a glass of local wine with the state’s famous oysters. Visit distilleries and learn all about the process while sipping spirits. Or follow a craft beer trail and visit some of the more than 200 craft breweries that make up Virginia’s booming craft beer scene.
