Virginia is a large state that can be divided into several regions. NOVA, or Northern Virginia, is the most populous as it is a part of the National Capital Region and next to Washington, D.C. NOVA is where Urgent.ly got its start! The capital of Virginia is Richmond with Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Newport News all to the south along the coastline. The Shenandoah Valley is further west along with the heart of Appalachia region where you can encounter beautiful mountains and wonderful wineries.
Although the Washington Metropolitan Area, which includes Northern Virginia, has the second worst traffic in the nation, Virginia as a whole has the 21st-lowest congestion and the average commute time is 26.9 minutes. Many places in NOVA, including Arlington & Alexandria, are well inside the Capital Beltway (I-495) where rush hour lasts from 6AM-10AM and 3PM-7PM. Even those outside the Beltway in Fairfax or Tyson’s Corner, still often work inside it causing difficult commutes for everyone. Driving I-95 anywhere in Virginia, especially around major cities, like Richmond and Petersburg. So, instead take the scenic drive! A great place to start is with one of Virginia's four National Scenic Byways. Be sure to also travel along Virginia's Trails, including the Virginia Civil War Trails, Journey Through Hallowed Ground, and The Crooked Road!
