Fall in Virginia

  • Virginia is brilliant for fall getaways as 15 million acres of foliage burst into spectacular color.

    Your 48-hour fall getaway will be one for the memory books. Experience farms transformed into playgrounds with apple picking, harvest festivals, corn mazes, and hay rides through pumpkin patches. Or perhaps fall leads you to the coast, where migrating fowl are the only crowd you'll find. Whatever you choose, Virginia’s scenic roadways will show off the striking natural beauty along the way.
