    Virginia and West Virginia

    Virginia --

    1. Jamestown! It's the 400th anniversary!

    2. Homes of the presidents -- mount vernon, montpelier, etc.

    West Virginia --
    1. Harpers Ferry. During the civil war it is so important to talk about Harpers Ferry and John Brown. It's great for studnets to realize why families moved from Virginia out west (to what is now West Virginia) reasons -- the land wasn't conducive to the plantation farming, differences in philosophy, and more!

    2. Greenbank Observatory -- Radio Astronomy

    3. The Greenbriar -- be sure that you check to see if the bunker tours are available. This is a 5 star resort built during the cold war with a complete bunker underneath where the president and congress and cabinet would evacuate to if there was a threat to Washington. AWESOME to see the tunnels and underground world there as well as the 5 star resort!
