Welcome

While Virginia is known for its history, there is so much more to experience during your getaway, from sandy beaches to mountain escapes, charming small towns to dazzling cityscapes. Whatever you’re seeking on your next vacation, Virginia is the place to find it.

Attend a Virginia music festival like Pharrell’s Something in the Water or the Richmond Jazz Festival to experience genres heavily influenced by people of color, including Jazz, Hip-Hop, and R&B. Or learn about some of Virginia’s most iconic Black heroes who changed the course of history, like Nat Turner, Maggie L. Walker, and Arthur Ashe, at a museum or Black history site and explore immersive storytelling around the early role of freedom fighters with Colonial Williamsburg's expanded learning opportunities. Whether you’re looking to explore the bustling metropolitan areas of Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Beach, and Northern Virginia or searching for a rural getaway that focuses on inclusivity, use these trip ideas to plan your next Virginia vacation.
