The Lighthouse Road Trip On The Virginia Coast That’s Dreamily Beautiful

For centuries, lighthouses have stood as a beacon for travelers along Virginia’s coast. While they serve an important purpose, they also stand as a testament to coastal living. Rarely do we get an opportunity to dedicate our time to learning about the lighthouses of Virginia, and yet these are sites that hold so much history.

The motivation behind this road trip is to see these beautiful structures, either up close or from a distance, and learn a bit about their past. At just under 6 hours, this trip will provide some breathtaking views of Virginia’s coast. (For the interactive map, click here.)

Along your drive, be sure to spend time in some of the nearby towns that are equally charming as the lighthouses themselves. Have you visited any of these historic structures? Feel free to share your experience there with us!
