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.
Do your shopping at Carytown and For the Love of Chocolate. Escape the urban bustle at Yorktown Beach and Appomattox Court House National Historical Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Richmond: James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station), Williamsburg (Colonial National Historic Park & Bruton Parish Episcopal Church) and Fredericksburg (Fredericksburg Battlefield and Visitor Center, The Rising Sun Tavern, & more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Berkeley Plantation, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, take in the history at Petersburg National Battlefield Park, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Hollywood Cemetery.
