Things to do in Virginia, United States: The Best Self-Guided Tours & Rentals

December 8, 2021 Janean Rudisill

Virginia can make American history come alive. Visit Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, tour Civil War battlefields, explore the living history museum at Williamsburg… the possibilities are endless (if the kids object, break up the historical sightseeing with a visit to Busch Gardens). Arlington, site of Arlington National Cemetery, is just across the Potomac River from all the major sites in D.C. In addition to beaches and historical attractions, Virginia has plenty to offer outdoor enthusiasts. Active families will love the Blue Ridge Highlands, where hiking, canoeing and tubing are just a few of the activities offered. Couples might enjoy a romantic mountain cabin in Virginia after a day of hiking in Shenandoah National Park.

Had a wonderful time on the scavenger hunt! It was cool having interesting little details pointed out to us through trivia as we were guided around downtown. I brought friends from out of town and will certainly do it again!
