Welcome to my dreamy experiences taking a tour of Virginia.
I recently discovered the rustic and natural beauty that lies in Virginia when I went to visit my boyfriend in Norfolk back in May… and then again when we took a Virginia road trip through the state on my second trip there!
And I fell in love.
But who could blame me? Traveling in Virginia provides the most incredible:
- lush green forests
- historical significance
- mouth-watering restaurants
And let me just say… the expression “Virginia is for Lovers” certainly has a bit of truth to it! The charming Southern hospitality I’ve been lucky enough to experience has been absolutely wonderful!

There is a significant military presence in the state due to the massive Navy bases present, especially in Norfolk, though I think it just adds to the unique charm of the state to have beautiful Navy ships and memorials scattered throughout the community.
