Exciting Virginia Activities & Attractions

Virginia is an essential stop along any USA adventure tour. From the downhill skiing and mountain biking of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the white water rafting of the James River, the state’s peaks and waterways offer plenty to soothe the restless spirit. But why stop there?

Wander through underground acres of stalactites and stalagmites at Luray Caverns, the largest caverns in the eastern United States. Bring the kids along to theme parks such as Kings Dominion or Busch Gardens, both offering water rides, concerts and a combined total of 20 roller coasters.

Flying & Racing in Virginia

Enjoy surf lessons at Virginia Beach, or take to the air with a hot-air balloon ride, hang-gliding lesson or parasailing adventure.

If you love the thrill of the chase, visit high-speed NASCAR auto races at Richmond International Raceway or attend one of the state’s famous horse races, held nearly every weekend from spring through autumn.
