5 Things to Do During Your Trip to Virginia


Virginia is one of America’s most historic states and helps make up the thirteen original colonies, so it’s a place everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. From the famous sites and historic landmarks to the flourishing cuisine, there is something for everyone – no matter what you’re interested in. You won’t be short of attractions to see and things to do in Virginia, but here are five unmissable items for your itinerary.

Williamsburg Historic District

Whether or not you’re interested in American history, you’ll want to go back in time to the historic district in Williamsburg, if only for the beauty of the reconstructed architecture. Colonial Williamsburg is a living-history museum standing as an interpretation of a colonial American city. The exhibit contains dozens of restored and recreated buildings, costumed actors reliving the eve of the American Revolutionary War, and the famous Governor’s Palace. Colonial Williamsburg is one of the largest history projects in the nation and a popular tourist attraction. It is also part of the Historic Triangle of Virginia, which includes Jamestown and Yorktown, all of which are linked by the Colonial Parkway



The Skyline Drive

If you’re travelling by car, you won’t want to miss the Skyline Drive, a 105-mile stretch of road that runs the entire length of Shenandoah National Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. If you don’t want to drive, you can also view the stunning skyline on horseback or by cycling the trail. Bear in mind that the Skyline Drive is usually busiest in fall, when people come out to see the wildlife (including deer, black bears and turkeys) and go leaf peeping the popular pastime that consists of spotting fall foliage. The road is often closed in the winter due to ice and storms.

Escape Room

Escape rooms are popping up all over the world at the moment, and there are usually several in major U.S. cities. If you like the sound of cracking codes, solving clues and working through puzzles to break out of a fictional “locked room”, then book an Escape Room Richmond. You can play with friends, as a couple or with a group of strangers, and you can explore Richmond, a thriving city in Virginia’s capital, while you’re there.

Busch Gardens

Another Williamsburg attraction, Busch Gardens is a Europe-themed amusement park with rides, roller coasters and SeaWorld entertainment. Touted as the world’s most beautiful theme park, Busch Gardens has a delightfully green, leafy atmosphere. There are plenty of events and attractions for kids, as well as water rides, baby-friendly play areas and delicious eateries for the whole family.

Shenandoah National Park

If you love the great outdoors, Shenandoah National Park is a must-see. Stretching along the Blue Ridge Mountains, the forested park is home to wetlands, waterfalls, rocky peaks and many endangered species including the elusive black bear. The park has over 500 miles of trails, including a 101-mile section of the famous Appalachian Trail, so it is a haven for hikers as well all-round nature lovers.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
