Virginia is a state with a rich past and a great many points of interest, including over two thousand historical markers and landmarks, with many buildings listed in the National Register of Historic Places. As one of the original Thirteen Colonies of the new world, Virginia has places with many ties to Colonial America, and it was a significant area during the Civil War conflict.
The state's contribution to the founding of the country was significant as one of the original Thirteen Colonies admitted in 1788, and its historical markers reflect many citizens' involvement in the American Revolutionary War and the formation of the United States. VA history incorporates numerous themes such as the Revolution, the Civil War, early religious movements (Quakers, Episcopalians, Methodists), African-American Culture, and many more.

Due to how the State of Virginia developed from colonial times to the present, there are complexities with categorizing points of interest. StoppingPoints.com was organized to allow viewing of points of interest in a city, or to easily broaden outwards to browse places in the surrounding area by county. This is highly challenging with Virginia, where there are a number of exception cases and unusual naming conventions -- there are counties, independent cities that are treated similar to counties, counties that are named "City", and some counties and cities that share the same names. We're taking extreme liberty in categorizing independent cities within nearby counties or regions to allow one to more easily peruse local area points of interest. We welcome comments and suggestions from those familiar with the state on how we might make our guides more user-friendly.
