Virginia maps

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 © Michael Schmeling |

Roads & Highways

In addition to the major interstates listed above, a road map of Virginia will also include roads like:

I-295 which encircles the Richmond metro region 288 which connects I-95 south of Richmond to I-64 near Goochland Route 3 which is very long, stretching from near Locust Grove, VA all the way to Warsaw, VA. I-77 cuts through a small part of the state in western Virginia
