Virginia’s capital is like no other place in the world. It’s a city of extraordinary contrasts, where Victorian opulence blends smoothly with Colonial simplicity. Grand estates and stylized townhouses, wrought iron and gingerbread, cobblestones, magnolias and boxwoods, and four centuries of history together with a modern skyline create a breathtaking blend of past and present. Visitors to Richmond encounter Civil War battlefields, world-renowned museums, distinctive architecture, living history reenactments and magnificent gardens. The possibilities for enjoyment are endless. From a sightseeing flight over the city to a riverboat trip or a stroll through the quaint and historic neighborhoods, there’s always something interesting to do. This eTrail provides detailed information on sights, events, entertainment, shopping, dining, accommodations, and transportation in this area of Virginia.
