When you head to Virginia you will find out that the state houses some of the most appealing attractions and getaways that leave couples and individual travelers awestruck. It’s no wonder why the motto of the state is “Virginia is for lovers”. To summarize, whatever you love to do on a vacation, you will find it in Virginia. Not only does Virginia consist of amazing historical locations, but the natural attractions here are pretty stunning as well.
So, if you are thinking about going on a romantic holiday with your partner and even your best ideas are starting to seem a bit lackluster then head to Virginia which is sure to beat even your finest getaway in town when it comes to romance and intimacy.
So, here are some things you can do with your spouse/partner if you have made your mind to head to Virginia.
Plan an excursion to Sandbridge Beach for an intimate afternoon
Head to Sandbridge Beach while the rest of the state makes their way to Virginia Beach. Virginia Beach can be pretty crowded and exactly the opposite of what you want on a romantic holiday. So, to find solace, go to Sandbridge Beach which is approximately 15 miles away from the Virginia Beach, but it’d definitely seem like you’re on a secluded island.
Indulge yourself even deeper in nature by touring the close by Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park.
Explore Luray, a popular attraction in Shenandoah Valley
A picturesque destination like Luray, housed in the Shenandoah Valley might pleasantly surprise tourists seeking small town charm. In addition to the magnificent landscapes like Luray Caverns and Shenandoah, you can check out quaint shops, unique eateries and get to know local artists and musicians.
If that doesn’t please you, then the wide variety of food that the Main Street has to offer is bound to impress you.
In the words of Katie Long this place is a “Four Season Destination”. So, make sure you plan a trip to it.
Discover the Colonial Williamsburg museum
Williamsburg is one of the largest museums in the world which houses more than 40 historic sites. Plan a day trip to discover the retro city and get involved in military reenactment or circle a hoop on the palace garden.
Stroll along brick sidewalks of Portsmouth
Right across Norfolk is the retro town of Portsmouth. Ride up to Norfolk and put your car in parking, take the ferry across the Elizabeth River and get to Portsmouth.
Walking around the brick sidewalks with your partner will give you a special tranquil feeling which you will remember forever.
Kayak or paddle through the Great Dismal Swamp Lake
The Great Dismal Swamp Lake is a huge habitat that occupies large pieces of land in Virginia and North Carolina. This trail is open to runners, brisk walkers, bikers, and horse riders. The sidewalks of the trail are lined with maple, cypress, tupelo and pine trees. If the hike on this trail doesn’t mark a 10 on your adventure scale then kayak or paddle through the swamp which will surely get your adrenaline going.
