Overview

You'll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go--they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping, and nightlife. You'd be lost without us!

Meticulously researched by a longtime resident, and infinitely more detailed and complete than its major competitor, Frommer's Virginia has everything you need for the perfect trip. You'll rely on our honest, indepth reviews of accommodations in every price range (all based on personal inspections), from colonial inns and distinctive B&Bs to family-friendly motels. We'll bring you the latest on the dining scene, including sophisticated cafes, historic taverns, and down-home Southern barbecue joints.

With Frommer's in hand, you won't miss any of the highlights: Jefferson's Monticello, the solemn expanses of Arlington National Cemetery, charming small towns, colonial Williamsburg, the best trails in Shenandoah National Park, the sun and surf at Virginia Beach, and Civil War battlefields--plus the best fishing, golf, hiking, river rafting, foliage tours, and much more. You'll even get a free color fold-out map!
