Welcome the New Year in the State of Virginia 2013

Virginia, named for Elizabeth I, the Virgin Queen, is a state of the USA located on Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.  History has combined with geography to make the Commonwealth of Virginia a leading tourist centre. The Blue Ridge Parkway with its remarkable flora, located in the Appalachian Mountains in Virginia and neighboring North Carolina, is the most visited of America's national parks. The Shenandoah National Park also covers part of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Piedmont region and is particularly famous for its numerous waterfalls and the variety of animal species living here. Virginia is the leader in the Southeast in terms of offering New Year's Eve 2013 celebrations.
