Virginia Road Trip: Exploring the State Along I-81
As a near life-long Northern Virginian, I know there’s a lot to love about Virginia (I mean hello, Virginia is for Lovers). I also know that most visitors, and in-state residents, give a lot of love to the east side of the state, like Williamsburg, Richmond and Virginia Beach. I can tell you, however, that the west side deserves its fair share of love. In April, we took a week-long road trip along I-81 from Northern Virginia to Abingdon (a few miles from the Tennessee border). There were waterfalls, wild ponies, trail towns and intensely scenic views.
