From just outside of Washington, D.C., 180 miles by rail connects Old Town Manassas to Fredericksburg to Richmond to Norfolk along Virginia's coastline. It's a diverse journey through a slice of Americana beginning at Old Manassas, where Occoquan is a historic riverfront town and Civil War monuments are poignant. In Richmond, tour the Confederacy's former capital building and take a break from history with a brewery tour. And in Norfolk, step aboard Battleship USS, Wisconsin before heading to Doumar's, creator of the world's first ice cream cone.
