Located on the Virginia Peninsula or within an hour’s drive you’ll find exciting and famous historical, recreational and cultural attractions. You can enjoy the sun, sand and surf of Virginia Beach and North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Tour the reconstructed houses and shops in Colonial Williamsburg. Visit historic Jamestown and the battlefields of Yorktown. Enjoy the diverse scope of local – but world-famous – museums. Or spend a day at one of the area’s entertainment theme parks: Water Country USA or Busch Gardens/The Old Country.
