When I visit and have visited the Virginia Beach Area I usually go in July.  It is crowded at that time of year but the weather is usually great! On my last trip, these are the sites that I visited.

Arlington Cemetery-

Arlington National Cemetery is a United States military cemetery in Arlington County, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., in whose 624 acres the dead of the nation’s conflicts has been buried, beginning with the Civil War, as well as reinterred dead from earlier wars.


I then drove to Shenandoah National Park that would talk about an hour or so.

Shenandoah National Park

Just 75 miles from the bustle of Washington, D.C., Shenandoah National Park is your escape to recreation and re-creation. Cascading waterfalls, spectacular vistas, quiet wooded hollows—take a hike, meander along Skyline Drive, or picnic with the family.  This is a great spot to explore the outdoors.

Things to do a Shenandoah Park – Driving Skyline Drive

Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park and is the only public road through the park. It takes about three hours to travel the entire length of the park on a clear day.

  • Room with two double beds.

Then I would drive about 3 hours or so down to Williamsburg, Virginia. I never get tired of visiting Williamsburg. I just love it.

There are many things to see throughout Williamsburg. My favorite place to eat is  Kings Arms Tavern.  The Prime Rib on the dinner menu is a great option.
