Monticello is a MUST see. Ashlawn is very close.

If your into the civil war, Petersburg is good. Pamplin Historical Park I highly recommend. A lot of good sites in the area, Petersburg just dosen't promote them as they should.

Williamsburg is nice as well.

Second Williamsburg

If this is going to be your one trip to Virginia Williamsburg would be a very good choice.. Check them out on line first as they are a bit expensive, but worth it start early spend all day and have lunch there at the pub it's a blast!

+1 on Williamsburg. Plan 2 days and get a full pass so you see it all (if you are into history - else 1 day will do). Also, there are many outlets in the area. If you want some extra fun, Bush Gardens is very near.

We like to camp at State and County parks, we like the natural settings. We do have a 35 foot MH so a little bit of room is nice, I mean so we don't have to drive through the bush if you know what I mean. Jim

Shenandoah NP and Skyline Drive are great. You can also drop down into Luray or Front Royal for some small town charm.

We stayed in Shenanhoah River State Park over Memorial Day. Nice big campsites, walk to river.

The is all on the west side (I-81) of VA.

Grayson Highlands state park is absolutely beautiful. I was there in my 36' coach a couple of weeks ago. Highly recommended if you like nature. Great park.

Ramblin might have to check out Grayson, sounds like our style and not to far to travel from the Rally. Thanks Jim

If you like state and national parks (as we do) then Sherando Lake Recreation Area is the ticket. Not a far drive off of I-81 in Virginia.

Here is the park website link click here.

Here are some pictures of the campground area, click here.

Here is a link with reviews (look at them!) of the campground, click here.

The blue ridge parkway is not far away along with Charlottesville, VA.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

If you do, make sure to take the short, easy hike up to 'Little Pinnacle'. The view is stunning.
