Located by the Chesapeake Bay and created in the 1930s, the First Landing State Park is Virginia’s most visited state park. With over 2,800 acres, this stunning park offers a bevy of outdoor activities including biking, boating, hiking, tent camping and comfortable cabins.
Once known as Seashore State Park, the name was changed in the late 90s to reflect the glorious American history that took place on this hallowed land: The first pilgrims to settle Jamestown first alighted from their ships on this very shore.
Visit early in the day before the heat descends and the animals are still out and about. A short trail walk and you’ll find yourself amazingly close to foxes, snakes and other wild animals.
