One of the main concerns when we are looking for a house sit is location. We always want to be near places that are interesting to visit. We were in the Hampton Roads area for nearly six months and still didn't see everything! Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, the NASA museum, the Chrysler Art Museum and a bit further away, the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond. Plus, all the many beautiful plantation homes, assorted forts and battlegrounds, and miscellaneous museums we just happened upon. Which ever way we went, there was something new to see and explore. If you have never been to this part of the US, you should go!
