Looking for new adventures inside the lesser-known United States? Judy Colbert’s “Virginia Off the Beaten Path: Discover Your Fun, Twelfth Edition” is full of cool things to do, see and learn about in the state of Virginia. And if you’re like me, there’s plenty inside you didn’t know about to inform your Virginia travels. The 256-page book will go on sale on September 1.
“Virginia Off the Beaten Path” comes via Globe Pequot, an independent publisher in my home state of Connecticut. Globe Pequot has published dozens of travel books about U.S. destinations, which are listed here.

- Take a trip back in time along the Mount Vernon Trail
- Play on the Upton Hill Regional Mini Golf Course, where you’ll find one of the longest miniature holes in the world

So if you’ve ‘been there, done that’ one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.”
