Sunshine, flip flops, BBQs, and endless happy vibes… There’s truly nothing like summertime in beautiful Virginia. At Cornerstone Homes, the best part about this magical season is that you get to do exactly what you want, when you want, without worrying about a thing. 

With our “Lock and Leave” promise, you can be sure that your home will be kept safe during your trip. Your grass will be cut and your weeds will be pulled, so there’s no need to worry once you’re out and about. We do the work so you can play. After all, vacation’s all about letting go, so dive right into your next adventure!

Are you ready to explore the one-of-a-kind beauty of Virginia? From historical attractions to sandy beaches to the beloved Blue Ridge Mountains, there’s something here for everyone. Take a look at our favorite Virginia destinations, including Virginia Beach, Charlottesville, Roanoke, Williamsburg, and more:

Giddy up at a Dude Ranch

Experience the simple, down-home pleasures of campfires, sightseeing, and of course, horseback riding. At Shangrila, one of Virginia’s most popular guest ranches, you’ll get to live life at a slow, peaceful pace while enjoying the grand, expansive outdoors of beautiful South Virginia.

Lounge in style in Virginia Beach

A coastal city that’s so easy to love, Virginia Beach is where you can go for total relaxation and leisure. With an abundance of culinary gems to try, as well as concerts, festivals, a town center, family-friendly fun, and of course, the gorgeous oceanfront and the Chesapeake Bay, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see.

Go on an outdoor adventure in Roanoke, Virginia and Southwest Virginia

Nestled into the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains, Roanoke is a gorgeous hub of outdoor adventure. From over 600 miles of hiking and biking trails, including the Appalachian Trail and the Blue Ridge Parkway, to water sports like canoeing, kayaking, and paddleboarding.  Keep driving a little further west and be sure to stop at Hungry Mother State Park in Smyth County for some breathtaking views from the hiking trails!

Travel back in time in Chesapeake, Virginia

Want to experience American history where it happened? How about feel the wind in your hair on a kayak tour or a sailing cruise? In dynamic, one-of-a-kind Chesapeake, there are so many unique ways to make summertime memories. The perfect town for the whole family, your grandchildren would have so much spending a few vacation days with you here.

Cheers on the Beer Trail 

Yes, the “Cheers Trail” is just as happy as it sounds… If you love craft beverages, breweries and wineries, and of course, a good time with your friends, Virginia’s Blue Ridge Cheers Trail is the perfect stop for you on your vacation. Enjoy the best offers and deals on your new favorite drinks and eats, and revel in the company of people who love having as much fun as you do.

Feel patriotic in Charlottesville

Did you know that U.S. Presidents Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe once called Charlottesville home? This exceptional town, “where tradition is always new,” is filled to the brim with excursions and attractions for you and your family. From the famous Monticello and James Monroe’s Highland to the Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia to the Virginia Discovery Museum, everyone will love exploring this special place.

Waterfront vacation in Norfolk, Virginia

A vibrant port city like no other, there’s magic found around every corner of Norfolk. Bustling with events, water activities, art galleries, museums, tours, shopping, and of course, the most delicious dining around, Norfolk is the multi-faceted oasis you’ve always longed to visit. Especially if you love being near the water, you’ll fall in love with walking along the marina, fishing, learning to sail, and taking a breathtaking cruise.

Go back in time in Williamsburg

There’s no one way to describe Williamsburg… You know this town as a hub of history and culture, but did you know about the wide array of things to do here? From outdoor recreation to shopping to wine tasting to events, you and your family have so many options for fun and discovery. Stroll along the brick-lined streets of this idyllic town and take in all of the charm of one of America’s oldest towns.

What better time than summer to see a side of this beautiful state you’ve never seen before? From lakes to gardens to piers (and everything in between), you’re going to feel more connected to beautiful Virginia than ever.  And living the “lock and leave” lifestyle makes it even better!  All of us at Cornerstone Homes can’t wait to hear about your adventures! Happy summer to all.
