Virginia is a romantic getaway. The towering Appalachian mountains on the west give way to lush green farmland. Ivory-white beaches run alongside the vibrant Atlantic coastline in the east. Plus, it is one of the 13 original colonies of the United States. Consequently, history abounds in every corner of the state. Moreover, travel lovers, adventure seekers, nature-holics and everyone in between can have a wonderful time here. Appalachian culture rules in the rural highlands of southwest Virginia.
At the tip of the state is the extremely populated metropolitan region. However, the high skyscrapers turn to into the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains in the northwest. The capital city, Richmond, is in the central region of the state. Further east is the busy tourist hub, Virginia Beach.
