Nationale Parken / Staatsparken

blauw blokje - illu Shenendoa National Park
Shenandoah National Park lies astride a beautiful section of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which form the eastern rampart of the Appalachian Mountains between Pennsylvania and Georgia. The Shenandoah River flows through the valley to the west, with Massanutten Mountain, 40 miles long, standing between the river's north and south forks. The rolling Piedmont country lies to the east of the park. Skyline Drive, a 105-mile road that winds along the crest of the mountains through the length of the park, provides vistas of the spectacular landscape to east and west. The park holds more than 500 miles of trails, including 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Trails may follow a ridge crest, or they may lead to high places with panoramic views or to waterfalls in deep canyons. Many animals, including deer, black bears, and wild turkeys, flourish among the rich growth of an oak-hickory forest. In season, bushes and wildflowers bloom along the Drive and trails and fill the open spaces. Apple trees, stone foundations, and cemeteries are reminders of the families who once called this place home. Shenandoah National Park has many stories waiting to be told, and a world of beauty that can renew and bring peace to the spirit.

blauw blokje - illu Loudon County  -  Loudoun Convention & Visitors Association
"Loudoun County is the Old Dominion in riding breeches," wrote travel writer Sharon Cavlieer. We couldn't have said it better ourselves. With the state's largest and the nation's third largest horse population, Loudoun County's designation as horse country defines its culture and its character. Nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Virginia Piedmont, Loudoun's horse country offers visitors a stunning landscape to explore.
One of the best ways for visitors to experience horse country is by attending one of our many steeplechase races during the spring and fall. These thrilling events, held at historic locations such as Glenwood Park in Middleburg, Morven Park and Oatlands Plantation in Leesburg, and Belmont Country Club in Ashburn, feature colorfully-clad jockeys riding galloping horses through courses of obstacle jumps, hairpin turns, and high-speed home stretches.

Geschiedenis van Virginia  

Centrally located on the Eastern Shore, Virginia is the center of US history. America began here, with the first English settlement at Jamestown in the early seventeenth century. Colonial life of the 1700's included a large role for a bustling town called Williamsburg. Virginians fought in the American Revolution. By the time of the Civil War Richmond had become a major city.

History comes alive in Virginia. You can tour premier historic American sites such as Colonial Williamsburg, Monticello, Mount Vernon, and Jamestown, the New World's first permanent English settlement, founded in 1607. Virginia, home to eight American presidents, was the fateful site in America's battle for independence. Later, more major Civil War battles were fought in Virginia than any other state.
