10 FOUR SEASON STATE
Celebrate spring at Burnside Farms in Nokesville, with over 50 kinds of tulips, or explore the ephemeral beauty of Alexandria’s cherry blossoms with a Potomac River cruise. Summer promises long sunny days and clear nights made for stargazing at one of five designated “Dark Sky” state parks. Fall brings a show of colour along country roads, or the relaxed off-season pleasures of the beach, whether that means a leisurely shore lunch or biking along the boardwalk. For northern golfers shut down by snow, Virginia offers mild winter weather and courses that include classic Golden Age designs as well as modern layouts. If you’re looking for one destination that offers endless possibilities, Virginia is the perfect spot, with 12 months of temperate weather, and nature, culture and history all within easy reach.
