Wow! Where to start? Ocean front? Virginia has both developed and unspoiled coastline from Virginia Beach resort in the south to the Eastern Shore and its unspoiled barrier islands. Then there's the Chesapeake Bay with its tidal estuaries and rivers (Potomac, Rappahannock, James, York). World-renown fishing, crabbing and boating await the visitor.
Beginning in 1607 with the first permanent English-speaking settlement in what was to become the United States of America, Virginia is rich in history. For Colonial times, visit Jamestown, Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg. See settlement sites of the Native Americans (many of whom are still here: Pamunkey, Mattaponi, Nansemond, Monacan to name but a few). See historic Hampton Roads where the age of iron-clad war ships was born. Check out the fleet (esp. the carriers) in Norfolk.
Ride up Route 5 toward Richmond and visit the plantations of two US presidents and the site of the first Thanksgiving in Colonial America. In Richmond visit the White House of the Confederacy. Here also you can learn of the rich history of Africans brought to Virginia before the Pilgrims even got on their boat. It's all here.
Get on the Civil War history trail and see where the war started, ended and was fought for 4 years. Manassas, New Market, Petersburg, Shenandoah Valley, Appomattox - the list is long.
Visit the homes of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe and Robert E. Lee (now Arlington National Cemetery).
Virginia has the Blue Ridge and Allegheny mountains in the west. There you can start at Cumberland Gap and Wilderness Road SP and learn of westward expansion during and after the Revolutionary war, see caverns, caves, the Grand Canyon of the East. Fish, swim, boat the mountain streams and rivers. Snow ski at Wintergreen and Massanutten.
State Parks, mom-and-pop campgrounds and RV resorts are spread over the entire state. Once you unhitch, you won't be more than an hour's drive from a week's worth of things to see and do.
Oh, did I mention three NASCAR tracks? Kings Dominion? Busch Park?
I need to stop now before Luray Caverns comes to mind, and oh, I forgot ....

OHIO:
"You are now leaving Ohio" signs - at least this time of the year!

The State Parks are fairly updated with paved sites & modern bathrooms.

A few "Bucket List" attractions are Cedar Point, Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Homes County/Amish Country, Put-In-Bay, Rock-N-Roll & Football Hall of Fames, etc. We also enjoy the Cleveland, Columbus, & Akron Zoos, the Cleveland & Columbus Science Centers & Cleveland Air Show. Lots of loyal sports fans here, so Browns & Indians games are entertaining if your favorite sports team is in town & folks come from all over to see LaBron play now that he is back in town with the Cavs...

However, one of our favorite activities is biking through various sections of the Cuyahoga Valley Tow Path (downhill direction...) & having the CVSR train bring us & bikes back to our parking spot for just $2 (uphill...). In addition, "Rails-to-Trails" is converting unused rail lines to scenic bike paths across the state...

Don't forget the famous Robertsons Ham Sandwich shops - finally stopped at one a couple years ago while going to FAA Acedemy in OKC.

Wasn't worth the money or the hype IMO.

Right. And Richard Childress also has a world-class winery, along with many other wine producers.

Also, we have the largest natural-habitat zoo in the U.S. and the first state-supported university in the nation.
