• State Arboretum Of Virginia - Boyce, Virginia

      Comprising 172 acres on the University Of Virginia's Blandy Experimental Farm, the Orland E. White Arboretum was designated the state's official arboretum in 1986. Established on the site of a plantation, with a visitors center in a house that originally served as slave quarters, the arboretum is a nature lover's delight throughout the changing seasons, with plant species from all over the world. And to top it off, admission is free.
