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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Williamsburg (Water Country USA, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, & more), National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle) and Fredericksburg (Mary Washington House & Old Salem Church). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, admire the striking features of University of Virginia, contemplate the long history of James Madison's Montpelier, and take in the history at Yorktown Battlefield.

August in Richmond sees daily highs of 87°F and lows of 68°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
