Breweries & Wineries
Visitors simply must taste the local ales and wines. There are more than 270 wineries near Albemarle County. Some, such as Jefferson Vineyards and Afton Mountain Vineyards, even offer cozy homes you can rent on the vineyard property. So wine enthusiasts can enjoy a peaceful stay only a short walk away from the vineyards’ tasting rooms. Sadly, some vineyards aren’t offering wine tastings at the moment, due to COVID-19, but you can still purchase and enjoy local wines on the property. Local brews and wines are the best way to taste the coastal state’s aroma, and if you are into vaping, CBD vape is also legal here for those who are over 21 years old. Smokable hemp products are also legal in Virginia.

The Virginia Boardwalk is popular for socializing and meeting other tourists, while Croatan is the best choice to discover the culture and meet locals. Croatan is also great for surfing, as it has waves for both pro and beginner surfers.
