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 find plenty of places to visit near Richmond: Washington DC (National World War II Memorial, Washington Monument, & more), Williamsburg (Colonial Williamsburg & Busch Gardens Williamsburg) and The Rising Sun Tavern (in Fredericksburg). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, take in nature's colorful creations at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, contemplate the long history of African Burial Ground, and get a sense of history and politics at Virginia Capitol Building.
