Tourist Places in Virginia
Few places can match Williamsburg’s ability to recreate the setting of the American Revolution, where original 18th-century structures are either still standing or faithfully reproduced on their original foundations. You can walk down the same streets as Thomas Jefferson and stand where Patrick Henry spoke.
Virginia Beach is a very popular and often crowded resort town with the expected hotels, amusements, and a long boardwalk. It is named for the vast expanse of golden sand extending just east of Norfolk. Take them to the 19-acre Ocean Breeze Water Park, which features Caribbean-themed water slides, a wave pool, and a water playground if the Atlantic Ocean isn’t warm enough for them.
The Arlington National Cemetery, which spans 600 acres and overlooks Washington, D.C., is home to some of America’s most influential citizens. The tombs of President John F. Kennedy and the Unknown Soldier are the most visited.
