The capital city of Virginia, Richmond has diverse architecture, a large collection of monuments, and world-class museums that reveal the city's important role in American history.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Cape Charles Beach and Yorktown Beach. Take a break from the city and head to The Noland Trail and High Bridge Trail State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Richmond side-trips: Weyanoke Bird and Wildflower Sanctuary (in Norfolk), Williamsburg (Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Colonial National Historic Park, & more) and Colonial Parkway (in Yorktown). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Appomattox Court House National Historical Park, look for all kinds of wild species at Mackay Island Wildlife Refuge, admire all the interesting features of Monticello, and hike along Beaverdam Park.
