All of Virginia is a scenic drive - treasure our mountains, the Great Valley, and our coastal region, too.
Virginia’s Parkways – Statewide. Of Virginia’s legendary scenic parkways, the Blue Ridge Parkway is the longest and best-known and offers hiking, picnicking and scenic overlooks. Historic Mabry Mill is one of America’s most photographed roadside attractions.
The 23-mile Colonial Parkway connects Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown while the George Washington Memorial Parkway follows the Southern bank of the Potomac River in the Metro DC area. Each is a National Scenic Byway and an important greenway.
Burke’s Garden – Tazewell County. Sometimes called "God’s Thumbprint," this mountain-ringed bowl is ten miles in diameter and contains some of the Commonwealth’s most lush vegetation. Millions of flowers bloom in the spring and in the fall it is a heaven of colors.
Wait! There are more free things to do in Virginia!
