The 10th state in the union, Virginia is known for being “the birthplace of the nation” because it was the site of the first English settlement. Being the home of the world’s largest naval base, Naval Station Norfolk, and the world’s largest office building, the Pentagon, Virginia is also the birthplace of 8 U.S. Presidents. While Virginia is rich in US history it’s also known for fun. With 10,120 miles of shoreline, Virginia offers beautiful beaches and is a part of 2 mountain ranges with more than 600 miles worth of trails. Don’t forget amusement parks, music, and of course the food.
