Hi! My name is Merry Allison, and I want to welcome you to my blog! I have been a native Virginian for almost my entire life. One of my greatest passions is travel. I love to travel and explore the world around me. I have traveled around the world, visiting over 40 countries and all 7 continents, but I always return back to my home state of Virginia with contentment and joy. It is truly my home.

Some of my other great passions in life are exercise and enjoying the outdoors and nature. I love going for a walk, running, swimming, and bicycling. I have been exploring the trails, parks, and pools in Virginia for as long as I can remember, and I want to share my knowledge about all of these resources with you to help you explore the many beautiful natural wonders that Virginia has to offer.

The Commonwealth of Virginia offers some of the richest history and natural beauty of any state, with famous sites like Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, Mt. Vernon, and Monticello, to name just a few. In addition, the state boasts the best of all worlds: with gorgeous mountains in the west, the Atlantic Ocean and beaches to the east, and major metropolitan centers, including nearby Washington, D.C., Arlington, Alexandria, Richmond, and Norfolk.

Virginia Vacation Guide is designed to give you the best insider information about where and how to travel in the great state of Virginia!
