19 Things Everyone MUST DO In Virginia In 2016

As we’re about to ring in the new year, it’s only natural to be thinking about plans and ideas for 2016…plans other than the diet that we’re going to go on starting January 1, of course. We would like to help you with those plans by offering 19 suggestions for places to go and things to do in Virginia in the coming year. Some you’ll recognize as tried and true classics (making them rites of passage for most Virginians), but others might just be new places you’ve never heard of (making them perfect for a new year’s bucket list). And the one thing we can promise is that they’ll be a whole lot more fun than that diet.

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/

As we bid farewell to 2015, we would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year from Only in Virginia. Here’s to another great year of exploring the beautiful state we call home! And as always, if you have suggestions to add to the list, we would love to hear about them in the comments below. Cheers!
