Virginia, besides the fact that it’s ostensibly for lovers, is very close to our hearts.
My beloved aunt, uncle and cousin live 40 minutes outside D.C. in Reston,
and we’ve journeyed through pedestrian-friendly Charlottesville,
Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, the Virginia Wine Country,
and just about the entire length of the mountain-edge Blue Ridge Parkway.
Someday, we’d love to see the horses run wild on Chincoteague Island,
on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
Here are some resources to help you plan your own “travels with two” to Virginia.
