So we have a small cottage rented for the first week in September just outside Tappahannock. So far the only thing we plan to do is drive the Skyline Drive from the south end to the North end.
Apart from that we plan to just drive around, try and find a beach or two, visit smaller towns etc.
So with that in mind, what smaller towns are there within say an hour or two of where we are staying, that have nice walking streets, craft style/individual type shops to browse.(not antiques though)
We have a small blind dog as well if that makes any difference to suggestions. My wife would like to see Virginia Beach and we thought about driving up to Arlington cemetary but that is still up in the air.
We like craft style pottery, beaches, scenic drives, small mum and dad style restaurants versus high end dining. In our 40's/50's and time isn't an issue.
