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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Jamestown Settlement and Colonial Williamsburg. Visit Governor's Palace and Thomas Jefferson's Monticello for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Richmond: Williamsburg (Historic Jamestowne, Water Country USA, & more), James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station) and Yorktown Battlefield (in Yorktown). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, explore the different monuments and memorials at Hollywood Cemetery, get outside with Richmond Coliseum, and get in on the family fun at Kings Dominion.

To see photos, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Richmond tour planning site .

Expect a daytime high around 90°F in July, and nighttime lows around 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
