Richmond: A Living Piece of History 

Many travelers visit Richmond for the city’s historical significance. If you’re a history buff, Richmond has plenty of historical hotspots to offer. 

Founded in 1742, Richmond was the capital of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. While walking the storied streets of Richmond, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the American Civil War Center, travel back in time on the historic Canal Walk, and visit battlefield sites including the Beaver Creek Dam and Fort Brady. 

Enjoying Everything the City Has to Offer 

The activities don’t stop at Richmond's historical sites. In fact, the growing city is adding new and exciting things to its to-do list everyday. If you’re a traveler who loves to shop, then the stores on Libbie and Grove avenues in downtown Richmond have all the upscale designers you’re looking for. 

When all that shopping works up an appetite, there are scores of farm-to-table restaurants and craft beer breweries in and around the city center. When you’re ready to escape the city and see some of the country, Richmond also has plenty of walking and hiking trails as well as the 40-acre Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. 

Timing is Everything: When to Visit

Because Richmond experiences a Mid-Atlantic climate, it fully experiences all four seasons, so it’s up to you which season best fits your travels. The mid-summer highs in the city occasionally reach around 90 degrees fahrenheit, and the lows during winter reach the 30s. 

Rafting the powerful James River, which passes right through the city, is one activity you can’t pass up, especially in the heat of the summer. The best times for rafting are late May to early September when the summer rains really get the rapids churning. 

If you’re visiting Richmond in the winter, there’s plenty of fun in the snow as well. The downtown ice skating rink on Broad and 6th Street is always a popular attraction. In addition, Maymont Park throws a Victorian Christmas celebration at the park’s beautiful mansion.
