Guides to Virginia

"Virginia is for lovers," the state's tourist commission tells us, and the pictures of spectacular vistas from the Blue Ridge, the shady thickets of the Shenandoah, the lively nightlife of Virginia Beach, and the quaint historic buildings scattered across the countryside have fueled many a couple's dream of the perfect honeymoon. Virginia is packed with things to do and see, and perhaps no other state is as steeped in history or as sensitive to its influence in the development of the nation. Much of America's past can still be seen here: Colonial Williamsburg, Monticello, Mount Vernon, the battlefields of Fredericksburg and Manassas, the little town of Appomattox...all stand ready to reveal stories of bravery, perseverance, hardship, defeat, and renewal.

Today, much more than geography separates the cluster of Virginia cities surrounding Washington D.C. from the coal towns in the state's southwestern corner. As dissimilar in lifestyle and mindset as two separate countries could be, the contrast is real, but defies stereotypical labels. Case in point: Blacksburg, the site of Virginia Tech and a town set firmly within the boundaries of coal country, is also home of the famed Electronic Village, where each resident and local businness is wired to the Internet. After one visit to this charming state, you could be singing "Carry me back to Old Virginny...where the cotton and corn and electronic industry grow."
