Description - The majestic George Washington & Jefferson National Forest offers a variety of recreational and scenic opportunities. The Shenandoah National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway also offer a plethora of activities for the outdoor enthusiasts. From the Colonial Period to the Civil War Era, Virginia is blessed with a multitude of national sites.

Recreation - Visitors to the National Forests and National Park sites in Virginia will find many recreational opportunities. Boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, horseback riding, motorcycle riding, wildlife and plant observing, camping and picnicking are a few of the most popular activities.

Climate - Virginia, as a whole, experiences high humidity throughout the year. Summers promise high heat and humidity, which can make rigorous activities uncomfortable and difficult. Spring and fall are the best times to visit the area to avoid the heat. The mountains to the coast receive high rainfall during these seasons, so rain gear is recommended. Winter precipitation levels vary from year to year. The humidity makes temperatures feel colder during the winter as it makes the summer temperatures feel hotter. Weather on the coast is generally more mild than that in the piedmont.

Location - The National Forests, National Historic Sites, National Monuments and National Battlefields in Virginia are scattered throughout the state.
