Things to do in Virginia
Virginia is an excellent choice for those who want to recharge and un-plug within the comfort and care of exceptional hospitality and all-round wellness programs. And Virginia doesn’t disappoint offering options from the peaks of the Blue Mountains to the coastal Chesapeake Bay and even in Monticello wine country. Speaking of Monticello, if you do happen to be in the region, a stopover at Thomas Jefferson’s home is a true must.
Wine country tour
Take a venture through the Virginia wine country that prides itself in national vintages and swoon-worthy views. Just get on the road and get out there. Follow the Monticello Wine Trail for optimal winery visits. Chances are that your hotel might have a vineyard of its own to indulge in 24/7 too!
When you come to the South, take a moment to slow down and enjoy the stillness and the calmness of the region. Book a spa day to truly unite your body and soul in pure bliss and harmony. And when you’re done with that, just take a look outside at the beauty of the surrounding nature. Virginia’s vistas and services offer a proper repose.
The adventurous types might consider a drive through the Shenandoah Mountains or perhaps even a hike. Just 75 miles from the bustle of Washington DC, Shenandoah National Park is a land bursting with cascading waterfalls, spectacular vistas, fields of wildflowers and quiet wooded hollows.
