Home to the first American colony and next-door neighbor to the capital, Virginia holds a prominent place in the history of the country. But there is much more to Virginia than its history.
The outdoor enthusiast, the art lover, the wine connoisseur, and the fun-seeking family can find joy in Virginia. Opportunity abounds with varied industries from agriculture to technology having a place in the economic landscape of Virginia. With its proximity to the country's capital, however, government is the state's leading employer.
Although Washington, DC, is not technically within Virginia, their shared border is one of the most traversed in the country, with many of those employed in the city commuting in from Arlington and Alexandria. Venturing deeper into Virginia, and farther from the sounds of the city, beauty and bliss can be found in the suburban countryside of areas like Loudoun County and Fredericksburg.
