Virginia welcomes thousands of visitors each year, drawing travelers to the scenic beaches, storied mountains, lively cities and towns, and pastoral landscapes to discover all there is to love about the Commonwealth. But, as they say, “Home is where the heart is”, and Virginia’s charms are most evident to those who call it home.
“My Home, Virginia” is a tribute to what makes Virginia so special. The series follows distinctive Virginian voices to the beautiful places that inspired them to put down roots, calling them to return no matter how far their travels may take them.
SEASON ONE: TREVOR FROST
A Virginia native, Trevor Frost is a photographer and filmmaker who travels around the world, capturing the untamed beauty of wildlife and the landscapes they inhabit. His adventurous spirit has led him to the most untouched corners of the planet, from South American rainforests to the Serengeti, but his love for Virginia always brings him back to rediscover the diverse landscapes of his home.
Episode One: Great Dismal Swamp/False Cape State Park
Virginia’s coastal region is well known for its sandy beaches and popular destinations like Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Newport News, but the true magic of the region can be felt in the untouched outdoor spaces. Follow Trevor Frost as he paddles through the Great Dismal Swamp, a nearly 113,000-acre wildlife preserve that protects countless species of plants, mammals, birds, and insects, then camps overnight on the pristine waterfront shores of False Cape State Park.
Episode Two: Grayson Highlands
With rolling mountains and idyllic valleys, Southwest Virginia is rich in natural beauty that attract visitors to hike, bike, and explore the Great Outdoors. Trevor Frost takes you to Grayson Highlands State Park, where alpine-like peaks offer awe-inspiring vantage points and wild ponies roam the vast landscape. Note to visitors: Stay at least 50 feet away from the ponies and do not feed them; they are wild animals, and will bite!
Episode Three: The James River
The James River runs 340 miles through Virginia, and as the largest tributary to the Chesapeake Bay, protecting its waters is of the utmost importance. Trevor Frost shows visitors how to enjoy outdoor activities along the James while preserving the ecosystems found in and along the river.
