Virginia is known for many things: smoked meats, presidential homes, history, horses and even fraternities. Although rain doesn't happen to be one of them, that doesn't mean Old Dominion doesn't see a fair amount in the summer months. From May to September, Virginia sees most of its precipitation, which can sometimes feel like a nuisance considering these are also the most pleasant of outdoor months. While the rain can often make people and their dogs feel trapped or obligated to stay in one place if they intend on staying dry (let alone avoiding the dreaded wet dog smell), there are actually plenty of rainy day activities that can make them just as fun as any other day. With our advice and a little bit of creativity, you'll be singing in the rain in no time.
Rainy days can often put a damper on plans, especially if they include being outside. But thanks to Virginia's beautiful summertime weather and the majority of the rain coming while the temperatures are perfect for being outdoors, residents and visitors alike can still enjoy Virginia's attractions both inside and out. All it takes is a little dedication and a big umbrella and you and your pooch will be on your way, rain or shine!
