15 Things In Virginia You May Not Have Thought Of Doing

When it comes to staying entertained, Virginia has a lot of options. But if you’re like me, at the end of a long week, coming up with new ideas can be hard. Sure, let’s go to the museum…again. Yep, the movie theater is still there. Gah. I’ve been to the park 997 times – and that’s just in the last year. Clearly, it’s easy to fall into the rut of same ol’, same ol’. So why not mix it up a little?

We’ve looked around the state and found a few things that you may not have thought of doing before. Many of them are variations of standards – nature trails, theater, parks or historical tours. But these 15 ideas add a new twist to the ordinary. Ranging from free to moderately pricey, there are attractions for every age and activity level. So grab a notebook, take some notes and get ready to spice things up…

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
