Virginia may have more history than any other state – and much of it occurred in the Richmond area. More than 400 years of history unfolds at award-winning Richmond historical sites through magnificent architecture, monument-lined cobblestone streets, and world-class museums. Historical landmarks and museums covering the Revolution and Civil wars fill the area from St. John’s Church–the site of Patrick Henry’s famous "Give me liberty or give me death” speech–to the American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar, which has the largest collection of Confederate artifacts in the world. Stately homes fill the historic neighborhoods and line streets. Monument Avenue, the only avenue that is designated a National Historic Landmark in the U.S., is a wide lane with monuments of prominent Americans from Robert E. Lee to tennis legend Arthur Ashe down the middle and gorgeous trees creating a canopy overhead. The avenue runs through a historic district that is on the National Register of Historic Places. The second oldest English settlement in the New World is re-created at Henricus Historical Park (Chester, VA). Tour Tuckahoe Plantation, Thomas Jefferson's boyhood home. The Library of Virginia features an original copy of the Bill of Rights. And no visit to the former Capital of the Confederacy would be complete without touring some of the area's most famous Civil War battlefields. A self-guided driving tour of Richmond National Battlefield Park involves an 80-mile drive that allows you to follow in the footsteps of troops in the 1860s along the Virginia Civil War Trails, linking to more than 400 sites.

Honor one of the country’s greatest writers at the Edgar Allan Poe Museum. The Museum of the Confederacy contains the most comprehensive collection of military, political and domestic artifacts and art from the Confederacy. Celebrate African-American enterprise and business at the Black History Museum. Other museums include the Museum of Fine Art, Science Museum, Aviation Museum, and Children’s Museum. Richmond is home to the San Francisco Giants AA baseball stadium.

Twenty miles from Richmond is Kings Dominion (Doswell, VA) with more than 200 rides, a 19-acre water park and costumed characters such as Scooby Doo and SpongeBob. Maymont offers 100 acres of history, animal habitats and horticulture.
