Welcome to the next post in my series highlighting states we have visited throughout the years. I hope you will enjoy coming along for the ride!
I will be featuring the states alphabetically. We have not visited Vermont so the next state in my series is
Virginia became the 10th state on June 25, 1788. The Capital is Richmond.
Scenic mountain drives, a Sunday jam session at Floyd Country Store, Claytor Lake State Park, Natural Bridge, and a movie location are a few of the places we have visited in Virginia in recent years.
There are many spectacular views along the Skyline Drive which runs through the entire length of Shenandoah National Park.
The Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia has some magnificent views and interesting rock formations.
The movie “Dirty Dancing” was filmed at Mountain Lake Lodge.
Before we had our fifth wheel we drove through the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.
Listening to the Appalachian music and watching the flatfoot dancers at the Sunday oldtime music jam session at Floyd Country Store was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
Claytor Lake State Park has been a frequent camping destination since we have been RV’ing and is one of our favorite state parks with a beautiful lake, trails, and wildlife.
Seeing the Natural Bridge requires either a walk down many steps to a paved path or taking a shuttle drive down the hill to the beginning of the path. Either way it is worth it to see this amazing natural formation.
