Sometimes you don’t even have to ask someone from Virginia where they’re from — they will have already tipped you off by wearing at least one visible piece of flair from their favorite sports team or university. Or both. And of course, you can always check their license plate. It WILL be personalized even if it’s registered in a different state. But should you be dealing with a more subtle member of the species, here are few more tells that Virginians give that just prove the theory – you can take us out of Virginia, but you can’t take Virginia out of us.

One thing is for certain, no matter where we are, we can be spotted. We are full of quirks and chances are we’ll drive you crazy with useless facts and bad driving. But at the end of the day, we’re a fun bunch to know! Tell us how you get called out as a Virginian…we want to know!
