This One Beautiful Virginia Lake Has A Beach That Rivals The Coast
With summer drawing near, there’s one place that’s on everyone’s mind: the beach.
You may not have realized that Virginia has tons of beaches, and they aren’t necessarily along the coast. Head straight to the mountainous Bath County and you’ll find a delightful state park known as Douthat. Complete with a lake and man-made beach, the entire set up of this beautiful natural area could rival the coast. Plus, it’s not nearly as crowded as the beach.
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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
