Group Tour Themes

  •  

    Part of the magic of Virginia is that you can pick a theme, select the geography you want to go with it and set out on a tour of discovery.

    Themes

    How about the arts, birding and wildlife, minor league baseball to name three. Or military history, music history and natural history, for three more. How about presidents – Virginia is home to eight – or parks, for which the state has been ranked first in the nation.

    Just in the category of outdoors, the contexts are nearly endless, from the birds and turtles at First Landing State Park on the Chesapeake Bay to the 105 miles of the Skyline Drive and the 219 Virginia miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway; from the wild ponies at Chincoteague on the Atlantic to the wild ponies on Mount Rogers, more than a mile above sea level.

    Or consider walking in Virginia. The state is full of trails, from easy, scenic legstretchers to the 540 miles of the famed Appalachian National Scenic Trail. Some of the easiest and most scenic walks are along rails-to-trails, where old rail lines – generally along flat terrain – have been converted into walking and/or biking paths.

    For wine lovers, there are seven designated wine trails in the state, taking visitors to a good number of the state’s 120 wineries, many of which welcome tour groups. Virginia is also home to six specifically designated viticultural areas.

    Ready to pull out all the stops and set out on the ultimate Virginia luxury tour? The commonwealth is more than ready, with at least a half dozen full-service, multi-star resorts offering everything from exquisite gourmet breakfasts to late-night dancing.
