Virginia is the birthplace to more presidents than any other state. Eight US Presidents to be exact: Washington; Jefferson; Madison; Monroe; Harrison; Tyler; Taylor; Wilson. 
* Virginia is the only state to have the same plant for state flower and state tree: the flowering dogwood. 
* The Pentagon building in Arlington, VA, is one of the largest office buildings in the world- it covers over 5 million square feet. 
* Virginia has a state park named for a Natural Tunnel. This limestone ridge's tunnel was naturally formed and is 850' long. William Jennings Bryan called it the "8th Wonder of the World." 
* St. John's Church, in Richmond, was the location of the second Virginia Convention where Patrick Henry famously delivered the "Give me liberty or give me death" speech (1775). 
* Williamsburg's College of William and Mary is where the first law school of America became established, in 1779. 
* In 1969 a copywriter working for an ad agency promoting Virginia Tourism created the slogan "Virginia is for Lovers." The slogan appeared in 'Modern Bride' magazine in the same year.
