If you get the opportunity, I would suggest visiting Williamsburg. The Historic Area is beautiful and rather extraordinary to see. Should you venture into Merchants Square in Colonial Williamsburg, be sure to stop by the Cheese Shop for gourmet goodies, delicious sandwiches and more!
I would also recommend Historic Jamestowne - just a short drive from Colonial Williamsburg, if you take the Parkway. It too is beautiful and "untouched." Plus, the archaeological excavation is extremely fascinating.
Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown is quite fun as well - with the beach, shopping and dining.
I can't seem to narrow it down... Hope this helps! :)

Virginia is home to numerous attractions, especially historical and natural attractions. One of the best known Virginia attractions is Colonial Williamsburg, where you'll discover living history in the form of actors dressed in period costumes, heritage gardens and animals, restaurants that serve specialties popular in the 1700s, event re-enactments, excellent museums, and more.
Next, you can discover the fine inns and delightful wineries of Virginia wine country. There are more than 80 wineries in Virginia. Boutique wineries (many family-owned) begin outside of Washington, D.C. and spread south in the rolling hills of the Piedmont Valley near cities like Charlottesville and Richmond.
If you're not into wine tasting, you can drive some of the prettiest roadways in the country in Virginia. The state's most scenic attractions are Skyline Drive -- which weaves across the crest of 195,000-acre Shenandoah National Park -- and the Blue Ridge Parkway at the southern end of the park. Spectacular views, waterfalls, and great places to hike are among the routes' prime attractions.
Another option is to visit Thomas Jefferson's mountaintop estate, Monticello, just outside of Charlottesville. It may take such a visit to completely understand the extent of his genius. Thinker, writer, Virginia farmer, host, inventor, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and third president of the United States, Jefferson was a true Renaissance man. The house, gardens, and plantation at Monticello give a fascinating insight into his life.
Finally, Mount Vernon, George and Martha Washington's home from their marriage in 1759 until the first president's death in 1799, is another of Virginia's prime attractions. You can explore inside the house and wander the four colorful gardens around its perimeter. Outbuildings include former slave quarters, the kitchen, and horse stables.
