Home to the oldest permanent English Settlement, Virginia has a long and storied history. Founded in 1607, it was on the forefront of much of the United States history. As such, there is a large variety of historical sites, battlefields, museums, and archives visitors to the state can enjoy. Virginia was also home to 8 presidents, giving it the nickname “Mother of Presidents” and a tradition of being politically active. With a temperate climate due to the Blue Ridge Mountains in the west and the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean in the east, the state has a little bit of everything from hiking to surfing for those who are adventurous.
