Virginia is positively brimming with beautiful hiking trails. But, if you’re looking for something a bit different, you might consider trading in your hiking boots for a life vest. Here in the Old Dominion, there are so many unique ways to enjoy the water, whether you’re swimming in the ocean or exploring one of the state’s great rivers. Today’s feature destination is one such place that you can’t reach on foot, but you’ll be glad you made the extra effort. In the middle of the Chesapeake Bay awaits an eerie, otherworldly ghost fleet known as the Kiptopeke Breakwater. These concrete ships tell a story of decades past, and viewing them from the water is a bucket-list experience for historians and nature enthusiasts alike.
