A wonderful place to visit in any season, autumn is a particularly attractive time to go on a Virginia driving holiday. The changing leaves will add another dimension to the already stunning natural scenery around the Blue Ridge Mountains and famous Crabtree Falls. Many of the state's farming communities, including those around Charlottesville and Winchester in Frederick County will also be hosting October wine and harvest festivals where you can sample some home-grown produce or a glass of locally-brewed wine or apple cider.
Military buffs will love the many war monuments and museums found in Arlington, not to mention the chance to get up close to the famous star-shaped Pentagon building. Many well-known war veterans, and President John F. Kennedy, are buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
