“There is a Destiny which has the control of our actions, not to be resisted by the strongest efforts of Human Nature.” These words were spoken by Virginia’s most famous native son, and a wise man at that: George Washington. Where does your destiny take you, intrepid traveler? There is no better place than where the Father of the Country was born, in Virginia’s beautiful Northern Neck.
Here, the state motto declares Virginia is for Lovers, and hotels in Kilmarnock are for those who hold beloved Southern traditions dear: leisurely conversation, small-town Main Streets filled with charm, and plenty of helpful locals to welcome you.
When you rise with the sun at hotels near Kilmarnock, VA, the day stretches before you with promises of idyllic country scenery and friendly neighborhood chats. Greet the day with a stroll down Main Street. In the local galleries, artists so vividly capture the action and adventure of sailboat racing in Chesapeake Bay, you just may feel the salty sea breeze in your hair. And there is something comforting about the air of the antique shop as you run your hands over intricately carved furniture and cigar boxes in search of the perfect souvenir.
Perhaps you now hear the whispers of great author Edgar Allen Poe: “Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.” If you follow your daydreams, wise wanderer, where will they take you? With one of our Kilmarnock rental cars, they can transport you all the way to Richmond, Poe’s home town, 70 miles west. The Edgar Allan Poe Museum is surely a good place to start—and one of Travelocity’s hotels in Richmond is an excellent place to end.
