    Welcome to Virginia!

    Located just south of Washington, DC on the USA's mid-Atlantic coast, Virginia is the perfect choice to experience the real America. Your arrival is easy through Washington Dulles International Airport in northern Virginia, which offers more than 230 weekly arrivals from 30 markets around the world. Or, if you are arriving in Virginia from another U.S. destination, choose from one of 11 commercial airports conveniently located across the state. Major highways and some of the USA's oldest and most scenic byways make a fly-drive holiday to Virginia convenient and enjoyable.

    From the sun-kissed Atlantic Ocean beaches at Virginia Beach to the Blue Ridge and Allegheny mountains in western Virginia, from big city fun and world-class shopping to meandering drives over country roads, Virginia's attractions will give you a view of the American personality and lifestyle.

    History comes alive in Virginia. You can tour premier historic American sites such as Colonial Williamsburg, Monticello, Mount Vernon, and Jamestown, the New World's first permanent English settlement, founded in 1607. Virginia, home to eight American presidents, was the fateful site in America's battle for independence. Later, more major Civil War battles were fought in Virginia than any other state. And Virginia offers fun for all ages at world-class theme parks like Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and Kings Dominion, near Richmond, NASCAR races, and special festivals and events statewide.

    All corners of Virginia burst forth in the spring with wildflowers and garden tours. In the fall, brilliantly colored foliage blankets Virginia, especially the Skyline Drive, which runs through the Shenandoah National Park, and the Blue Ridge Parkway, which offers more than 200 miles of driving pleasure. Virginia's fall foliage splendor rivals that found in New England.

    Virginia's temperate climate makes possible a full range of recreational activities year-round, including camping, horseback riding, fishing, bicycling and golfing at more than 200 daily fee and award-winning resort courses across the state. Millions of acres of national forests with massive 300-year old hemlocks and limestone rock formations provide a refuge for rare plants and animals. Hikers will enjoy Virginia's 500-plus miles of the Appalachian Trail, a green footpath stretching from Maine to Georgia.

    If you are looking for the perfect American getaway, combining history, culture, sophistication, shopping, beautiful scenery, relaxation and friendly people, look no further than Virginia.
