Here Are 10 Spots In Virginia You Must Explore This Winter

In Virginia, we are spoiled with an endless abundance of natural beauty, easy access to outdoor adventures and beautiful weather most of the year. But when winter hits, it’s easy to just forego the outdoors and stay home close to the fire. That’s fine if you live somewhere that dumps three feet of snow in your front yard every other day, but we don’t have that problem here. In fact, we have more than a few places that just get better in the winter. Check out the following list for some ideas, then grab your longjohns, zip up your parka and start exploring!

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!
