Virginia is often referred to as the “Mother of Presidents,” and its Chesapeake region serves as a prime example! Tour humble Monroe Hall, birthplace of James Monroe, or the George Washington Birthplace National Monument, both in Westmoreland County. Stratford Hall, the estate of American Civil War Confederate General, Robert E. Lee, is also nearby. This 18th-century plantation features formal gardens and preserved Colonial-era rooms. But, if you’re feeling a bit stuffy, hit the outdoors at Westmoreland State Park! Camp, fish the Potomac River or watch the skies for eagles! Also in the area is the prestigious 3,000-acre Ingleside Vineyards. And, by capping off your tour of Virginia’s Chesapeake region with a bottle of its Petit Verdot, you won’t want to leave!
