Richmond

4.5

The River City

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. Founded in 1737, it was the site of several significant events during the American Revolution, such as Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death" speech. Its tumultuous past also includes serving as the Confederacy's capital and playing host to several Civil War battles. As the northernmost city of the New South, the city reflects traditional Southern hospitality coupled with the international buzz of the Northeast Corridor. Much more than just a history buff's dream, Richmond has plenty of attractions to delight outdoorsy visitors too, boasting 40 municipal parks and the James River, with class IV rapids. You can plan United States trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
