100 Best Things to Do in Virginia 10/20

Virginia is a beautiful state with a long history. You’ll find places that are tied to the original settlement of the country, the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, as well as beautiful state parks and modern museums.


46. Hampton Roads Naval Museum (Norfolk)

This is the official museum of the United States Navy, Hampton Roads Naval Museum has a wide variety of Naval artifacts, including uniforms, ship blueprints and models, and photographs. It’s located on the second floor of Nauticus near the USS Wisconsin. Make a day of it and visit all three, but you’ll want an hour or two here.


47. George Washington Birthplace (Colonial Beach)

Established by George Washington’s grandfather and home to the Washington family for generations, the actual house where Washington was born was destroyed by a fire in 1779. The landscape, though, will show you why the family chose to lay roots here. There are also some plantation animals here, including Red Devon oxen names Lewis and Clark who are direct descendants if the oxen used by Washington’s grandfather on the plantation. Spend about 2 hours here walking around and getting a feel for the world the Washington’s brought George into.


48. The Pentagon (Arlington)

The Pentagon is the headquarters of the Department of Defense. You can get an hour long guided tour that include a 1.5 mile walk through the building. You have to make reservations at least 14 days ahead of time so make sure you prepare before you go!


49. Vermilion (Alexandria)

Vermilion is somewhat known for its tasting menu and wine pairings, they also host some very unique events. Twice a month by reservation only, they host a dinner party served at the large Farmer’s Table where the chef himself presents the meal. Make a reservation ahead of time and allow enough time to thoroughly enjoy a multiple course dinner.


50. Appalachian National Scenic Trail (Markham)

The Appalachian Trail spans the eastern US from Georgia to Maine; 554 miles of it go through Virginia which is the most of any state. You can see a mix of views from the trail in Virginia, from forest to mountains to farmland. You could spend days hiking here.
