Rent a Bus to Visit VA Cities Teeming with History & Outdoor Adventures
Beyond the halls of Monticello, the hallowed battlefields at Yorktown and Manassas, winding country roads and the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay, Virginia offers fantastic amusement parks, the excitement of NASCAR motorsports and cities teaming with history and art and, of course, great food.
The Commonwealth state is a year-round destination for outdoors lovers. In the summer, shoot the rapids on the James River, take in a concert at Wolf Trap or hit the resorts of Virginia Beach. Ride the roller coasters at Bush Gardens in Williamsburg or King’s Dominion near Richmond. In spring and fall, hike the George Washington National Forest. For winter fun, hit the slopes at Massanutten.
In the meantime, get your fill of museums and theater with a trip to Charlottesville, walk in the footsteps of a Jamestown settler or learn about life on a plantation along the James River and visit the grave of JFK in Arlington National Cemetery.
