Any trip to or even through Virginia is a trip through history and contrasts. Virginia’s nickname is the “Old Dominion,” which herald backs to the colonial era when it was the first British colony in America.
Virginia’s also the “Mother of Presidents,” eight of them, to be precise, including George Washington, Woodrow Wilson, and six in between, and the place where the Civil War finally ended. The world’s largest office building, the Pentagon, is here, but the state’s largest city is beach town, Virginia Beach, where the mood is considerably less formal.
