The region balances its historic past with a vibrant present. Scenic rural communities lie not too far from modern suburban city centers where cobblestone streets are lined with fashionable shops. Residents can attend foxhunts by day and the opera or ballet at night. Ride a bike along the historic Washington & Old Dominion Railway right-of-way, or enjoy the view from above in a jet flying out of Washington Dulles International Airport.
The scenic Potomac River rushes along the northern border of the state, past the District of Columbia to its east and down into the Chesapeake Bay. To the west lies the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah National Park.
Three professional sports teams give citizens something to cheer about: the NFL's Washington Redskins, the NHL's Washington Capitals and the NBA's Washington Wizards.
