The Best of Richmond, Virginia
Richmond is absolutely steeped in history. The state capital (and former capital of the Confederacy) has a multitude of museums and its atmospheric downtown includes more than 20 national and state historic districts. The Fan District, home to Virginia Commonwealth University, Monument Avenue, Jackson Ward, Shockoe Slip, Shockoe Bottom, and Church Hill are all worth exploring. And while Richmond may venerate the past, it also celebrates the present with a booming food and nightlife scene.
