These 19 Virginia Waterfalls Are Absolutely Breathtaking

You know that scene in all of the romance movies. The one where Boy sees Girl standing under a waterfall. Boy immediately falls in love with Girl. Girl acts surprised to see Boy. She doesn’t even like Boy. But suddenly Boy doesn’t seem so bad.  Cue 45 minutes of playful splashing and soulful swimming while Norah Jones sings in the background. Why? Because waterfalls are just that good.

Whether they appear at the end of a long hike, decorate a park setting or simply catch you by surprise on the roadside, there’s just something magical about a waterfall. These waterfalls in Virginia are no exception. You may be familiar with some of them and others may be a new discovery. Either way, these are 19 of the most beautiful we’ve seen and they’re all right here in our own backyard.

Waterfalls can be romantic, chaotic, loud or peaceful – sometimes they are all of these things at once. But no matter how big or small, there’s no denying their beauty. We would love to hear about some of your favorite Virginia waterfalls. Take a minute to let us know in the comments below.
