    Beautiful Virginia Neighborhoods

    by Casey | Posted on April 23rd, 2013

    Virginia is a treasure trove of beautiful architecture, historic villages, thriving arts districts and culinary hot spots. If you’ve never visited, you’re going to LOVE it.

    Portsmouth Lightship Museum

    There’s only one way to explore a town and that’s on foot. Charlottesville‘s downtown mall is a great place to spend the day.  This open air pedestrian mall is home to more than 120 shops and 30 restaurants, settled into historic buildings. Patio dining is plentiful, as are the arts with the nTelos Wireless Pavilion and the Paramount Theater on either end.

    The Elizabeth River is a beautiful highlight to the waterfront town of Portsmouth. Families enjoy Portsmouth for the many museums - Naval ShipyardLightship PortsmouthChildren’s Museum of VirginiaVirginia Sports Hall of Fame and others. Find plenty of dining options in Olde Towne along the 12 Historic Squares of High Street.

    If you’re going to Southern Virginia, make sure South Boston and Danville are on your list. You’ll love the upscale dining of Bistro 1888 and the beautiful architecture of Millionaire’s Row. Danville is dubbed “City of Churches” – go see why.

    Richmond’s Church Hill neighborhood is where you’ll find beautiful architecture and historic St. John’s Church, the site of Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death” oration. See that site and a great deal more when you walk the 6.2-mile Richmond Liberty Trail, but not before you enjoy lunch at The Roosevelt where the food is “an untraditional celebration of the food of the south.”

    May is the perfect time to get away to Waynesboro if you love the old school flavor of Virginia. The Waynesboro Motorsports Show features classic muscle cars, as well as the Rolling Thunder motorcycles. Conway Twitty’s ’56 T-bird, Austin Powers’ Shaguar and Alice Cooper’s ’57 Chevy will be on display. It’s happening May 11 and Basic City Luncheonette is the perfect ’50′s style hangout for lunch.

    Newport News has a great deal to offer families and couples alike. Do a little shopping, get your arts fill at Yoder Barn, Peninsula Community Theatre or the Ferguson Center, and take in some history, too. Huntington Park‘s 60 acres includes a public beach on the James River. You can easily spend a weekend or more in Newport News.
