My husband and I (late 50's, good health) are traveling to Richmond Oct. 7-13. We want to make a loop starting in Richmond going to Monticello, Shenandoah National Park, White Sulpher Springs, the New River Gorge, Appomattox, and back to Richmond for our flight home.
Coming from Arizona where distances are much further, I'm wondering if we can fit all that in. We like history and nature. What places should we make sure we see? Where should we stay? Where should we spend more time? We do like to drive and stop/hike/sightsee. Any suggestions? I haven't made any reservations for rooms yet.
