Virginia State Parks

The Beach is Within Reach!

Ask any kid, swimming and the beach seems to be the most fun in the summer months. Talk about swimming and watch their eyes light up!

Virginia State Parks has lots of options for swimming from the Chesapeake Bay at First Landing State Park to a mountain lake at Hungry Mother State Park near Marion Virginia.  

Here are some photos to inspire you to make your plans now for Summer, which happens to be just around the corner:
