Located in the American southeast, Virginia is the birthplace of the United States Of America. Not to be confused with Tenessee, Virginia is the birthplace of Country music and Southern culture and most of the modern South's populations have ancestors that are from Virginia. The state's first song,which was written by a former slave, was Carry Me Back To Ol' Virginny but is not used anymore due to it's offensive lyrics against African Americans, A second song has yet to be written. The state's flag was adopted during the Civil war to show resistance against the Union North, which Virginians saw as tyrants. The old or ol' dominion is the state's nickname.
Northern Virginians are exactly that and do not identify with Central and Southern Virginia but tend to have more in common with D.C. and Maryland. Northern Virginans for the most part do not have native accents due to most of them being originally from the north and mid-west, some elderly northern virginians will have an accent. Most Central/Eastern Virginans have the famous tidewater accent, a refined faster spoken southern accent and use words such as Hoose for House. Most Southern and South Western Virginians have the Thickest of the Accents which out of state people may have a hard time understanding. Northern Virginia is regionally different being considered the southern most section of the mid-atlantic and will have snow while Central and southern virginia will have rain as well as typical southern plants and palm trees. The state's motto is Virginia is for lovers but Virginia has approved a gay marriage ban, which Northern Virginia strongly was against. Northern Virginia will most likely become it's own state or something of the sort in the future. If you want to experiance American/Confederate history, Virginia is a great place to do it.
Guy 1 - I want to experiance the American history, hmm Maybe Westmoreland, Virginia?

Guy 2 - Yes that's a great place, George Washington and Robert E Lee were both born there!

Pronounced the exact same as the state. Ginny for short.

Hello Virginia..WOW, your smart, blonde and friedly! What a great combination!

Down where the South begins !
Virginia is for The FFVs- the true bastillion of the blue blooded Southern Artiocracy. Virginia is full of gracious plantation homes, home to Robert E. Lee, spoonbread, sweet tea, Brunswick Stew, and Country Music Legend Patsy Cline and wonderful singer-songwriter Meade Skelton. Many Yankees and tranplants who are jealous of this heritage out of ignorance will put old Virginia down. And even try to change our glorious state song. But we shall pervail !

Home to great history, beautiful scenery, southern hospitality--yes, isn't it hard to imagine people actually being friendly and polite !--and smoking hot southern women.
Look at that handsome southern gentleman and that gorgeous southern belle, I bet they're from Virginia.

First state with more history than any other state in the U.S. and unfortunatly some of the oldest cities which are broken down and constantly being constructed on IE. Richmond, and Norfolk.

Also unfortunatly, Richmond and DC rival each other as being on top 10 most dangerous US cities as well as murder capitol at some point with Norfolk being on there too, and don't move to VA Beach unless you like gangs.

Overall though, the state has a wave of history to it and many historical battle museums. Great for taking a class field trip to.
What's the best state to visit historic america? VIRGINIA!!!

virginia's got a bit of everything for everyone. For the younger population, city night life and malls galore if you look in the right place, and for them older rich republicans, horse farms and quiet country stretches of land in the western part. Personally I would stick to the southeast coast (Va. Beach/Hampton Roads) or NoVa (Fairfax County, Springfield, DC influence) where living for young adults is way more interesting than the corridor of nothingness I endure in the shen. valley.

It's not THAT south here. Especially in the diverse populations inhabiting the previously mentioned places. But some places where you could steer clear of: Southwestern (coal country, unless you like mountain after mountains of it),and south central (no idea what goes on down near danville). Other than those, you could settledown easy in places like charlottesville (voted best place to live in the country a few years ago by better homes and gardens) or williamsburg, alexandria, fairfax. Nice places. Just make sure to hang around the right crowd for you.
Virginia: a real mix of everything. I guess it's for lovers, so just look in the right place for it...
