One of the country’s most intriguing cities, Richmond is a fantastic destination for both business and pleasure. You’ll love the range of high-end, wonderfully facilitated conference hotels in Richmond, and will be equally as pleased with the variety of post-conference attractions the city beholds.
A uniquely historic city, Richmond was independent in colonial times and the capital of the Confederacy during the Civil War. To learn all about this, stroll along the 1.25 mile Canal Walk, which contains features describing the city’s 400 year history. The Church Hill Historic District contains 70 antebellum houses and St John’s Episcopal Church, which dates back to 1741. If you enjoy history, you will love exploring this area of the city.
When you start craving nature after your busy days at the conference, check out the James River Park Pipeline Walkway, which runs across a section of James River in the middle of downtown Richmond. On the walkway, you can enjoy the beautiful river and bird watching opportunities.
While being in parts of Richmond feels like going back in time, its array of eateries is contemporary and exciting. Check out one of its many multicultural restaurants for a post-conference dinner, such as the renowned Mediterranean Stella’s, or sample some hearty and warming Italian food at local favorite Mamma Zu. If you are seeking a beverage to wash your dinner down, check out opulent Lemaire, the restaurant within the five-star Jefferson Hotel. It serves up incredible cocktails and is a perfect stop to conclude your time in Virginia’s capital.
