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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at James Madison's Montpelier and Appomattox Court House National Historical Park. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like University of Virginia and National Museum of the Marine Corps. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Richmond: The American Civil War Museum - Appomattox (in Appomattox), Yorktown (Colonial Parkway, American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, & more) and Charlottesville (James Monroe's Highland & Beer Tastings & Tours). There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Hollywood Cemetery, admire the masterpieces at Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, get a sense of history and politics at Virginia Capitol Building, and learn about all things military at White House of the Confederacy.

To see traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Richmond trip planner .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 78°F, and evening lows to 57°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
