  1. As someone who grew up in Maryland, and also has done dozens of day trips all over the east coast, I'm a bit surprised by the lack of trips to certain parts of Virgina. In particular very little on Williamsburg, one of the best places to visit on the East Coast. In addition, nothing on Albemarle County (Charlottesville), Augusta County (Staunton, Waynseboro), and Rockingham County (Harrisonburg). Mabye I'm biased, as I know live in Harrisonburg, but all of these places have many wonderful places to visit. IMHO you should spend some time exploring these locations.
