Virginia is a traveler’s paradise, rich in history and scenic beauty. The Pelican Guide to Virginia,
by Shirley Morris, is a comprehensive guide to all of the state’s many attractions. The new second edition has been extensively revised to include accurate and up-to-date information on everything to see and do in Virginia.
Historic sites from the Revolution and the Civil War abound in Virginia, and the guide lists hours, locations, and admission fees for each, including Washington’s home, Mount Vernon, and Jefferson’s mansion, Monticello. A chapter devoted to the exquisitely preserved town of Williamsburg describes all the historic structures there.
But Virginia also contains the scenic Blue Ridge mountains, spectacular Luray Caverns, and superb camping, hunting, and fishing areas. Morris gives advice on camping in Virginia, and notes on driving tours to savor the state’s amazing natural beauty. A calendar of events reports on annual festivals, and maps help visitors find the state’s attractions.
