Virginia – beaches, mountains and military history

As one of the original 13 colonies, Virginia has a rich history and is full of sites from the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, making it a must-visit for history lovers. Many Virginia vacation rentals can be found along the state's long stretch of coast, which is a fun and lively family vacation spot in the summer, full of children cooling off in the clear seas. To the west, there's a stretch of the Appalachian Mountains, which have powdery snow in the winter for skiing and snowy fun, and the state has dozens of parks for hunting, hiking and fishing.

Visit Virginia's sandy shoreline

Virginia Beach is a popular family vacation spot, with a long stretch of sand and gentle seas that are perfect for swimming. Many Virginia vacation rentals are found close to the waterfront, and there's a long promenade with a fishing pier, shops and family-friendly restaurants. With amusement parks and an aquarium close-by, kids will love this lively beach. For a quieter experience, head up the coast to the Virginia Barrier Islands, which are connected to the mainland by bridge. Uninhabited, these islands form a nature reserve full of long stretches of beach, as well as marshland where rare birds nest.

Discover Virginia's role in America's wars

Virginia has a rich history and has played a major role in America's wars. At Colonial Williamsburg, you can step back to the days of the Revolutionary War, with perfect preserved and renovated buildings showing what life was like in the 18th century. To add to the atmosphere, staff wear historic costumes and play some of the town's characters. Tour the houses of the rich and poor, ride on a horse and carriage, and try out some crafts. At Manassas National Battlefield, you can learn about the important Civil War battles that took place, and occasional reenactments make learning fun.

Snowy mountains to mild coasts in Virginia

Because of the varied geography of Virginia, the state has different climates in different areas. Virginia Beach has hot and humid summers, with mild winters that have a light dusting of snowfall. If you're booking Virginia vacation rentals to ski, you'll notice the mountain temperatures are quite a bit cooler, with decent snowfall. The mountains have cooler summers than the coast, making them a popular vacation spot to escape the heat, with golf and biking among the outdoor fun on offer.

Virginia mountain ranges and sandy coastline

Virginia has a wide range of interesting geographical features, from mountains to rivers, making it ideal for outdoor activities. The Appalachian Mountains, to the west, are popular for camping and hiking, with the Mau-Har Loop following steep, rocky trails. You'll spot waterfalls and swimming holes along the way. Taking about 10 hours, you can enjoy a large plateau at the top, which has panoramic views across the mountain range. Virginia has a long stretch of coastline that feeds into rivers and reservoirs, where you'll find quiet beaches and calm waters, ideal for exploring by boat.
