map of virginia
Your source for complete map of Virginia information. Here are all the highways and by-ways, mountains and valleys, meadows and beaches that make up the Commonwealth of Virginia. One place I worked at as a temp had a giant map of Virginia on the wall that primarily indicated the boundaries of each of the counties within the state. As a newcomer to the area, I was drawn to this item and tried to learn as quickly as I could where things were located in this great Commonwealth.
Map of Virginia
Virginia is a slanted, triangle shaped state and also includes some counties on what is known as the eastern shore. As you can see in this relief map of Virginia, the terrain in this state varies from high mountainous regions (brown shaded areas) to very low-lying swampy areas (shown in red).
The major north-south interstate is I-95 and the major east-west one is I-64. On the western part of the state, you'll find the heavily-traveled I-81 which runs north-south and has some great views. image Â© Michael Schmeling | Dreamstime.com
