The Central Virginia region encompasses the middle portion of the state and guarantees travelers a unique experience by pairing urban city fun with scenic rural offerings. This region offers a diverse landscape defined by its rolling hills and river valleys that provide ample opportunity for outdoor recreational activities like kayaking, canoeing, and fishing on the James or Rappahannock Rivers. Interested in learning more about Central Virginia's historical significance? Spend a day touring founding father residences like Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and James Madison's Montpelier, or visit any number of historic battlefield parks.
