Virginia - Little Ireland in the United States

Among attractions in Virginia can be distinguished: Shenandoah National Park and Arlington National Cemetery. In addition Busch Gardens, the estate of John Washington and farm Wolf Trap are interesting for tourists. Be sure to visit on a complex of bridges and variety tunnels across the Chesapeake Bay, go through amazingly beautiful mountain route Skyline Drive, drive on the highway along the spine of the Blue Ridge and, of course, if you are traveling in summer, sunbathe on Virginia Beach, listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest beach in the world.

On the territory of the state there are famous and certainly interesting historical monuments. First of all, the restored and reconstructed buildings, one way or another related to the colonial period. In particular, the home of George Washington (Mount Vernon), the home of Thomas Jefferson (Monticello) and other residents of Virginia, who glorified their names during the American Revolution and the Civil War.

The rich history and magnificent nature of the state turned Virginia into one of the major tourist centers in the country. Huge areas of forest, coming down from the mountains into the valley to the west and occupying almost all the rest of the territory to the beaches of the Atlantic coast, generously provide with the fresh mountain air and birdsong, the wildflowers and berries, lots of squirrels, opossums, foxes, and deer. Rivers and lakes of the state literally abound in a variety of species of fish.
