Why Virginia Could be Your Next Hometown

Dating back to the first English settlement in 1607, Virginia is full of history and heritage. Apartment renters can enjoy several preserved historical sites including battlefields, plantations, historic churches, and more. Virginia apartments are also near several outlets shops, high-end retail stores, dining options including country kitchens and five-star restaurants, an array of nightlife spots, and Virginia wineries.

The "Old Dominion" is filled with beautiful scenery, historic cities, plantations and battlefield sites. Northern Virginia was the site of many battles - including Civil War battles - because of its proximity to the nation's capital. It's no surprise that the state has a number of battlefield reenactments, museums and demonstrations. Manassas is famous for being the site of the Battle of Bull-Run while the city of Fredericksburg is known to have endured through the Civil War.

Virginia is also known for it state's slogan, "Virginia is for Lovers" which originated in 1969. The Virginia State Travel Service wanted to adopt a slogan that would bring in tourism and during the age of hippies, had though it appropriate. However, today the slogan means many different things. Perhaps most discover that Virginia has a lot to offer with its mountain landscapes, beaches, cities and of course, history.
