Richmond, Virginia is one of America's most historic cities, and many visitors come here to explore its confederate heritage. However, the city also has much to offer for those who love water sports; with the James River offering white water rapids which are accessible right from downtown.
Once in the city, don't miss Shockoe Bottom with its cobbled streets and historic buildings. The Edgar Allen Poe Museum is located here and offers a fascinating insight into the great American writer.
Nearby, the Museum of the Confederacy and The American Civil War Center are both must-sees for history buffs, as is Monument Avenue with its many confederate statues. Culture buffs will love touring the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, which features many international exhibitions from around the globe.
When you fly into Richmond International Airport (RIC), take a short ride into the city, or rent a car and take your pick from the I-64, I-295, Pocahontas 895, and I-85. There is also a public bus service, but since it's easy to get around Richmond by car, most visitors opt for rental instead.
Children will love the children's museum of Richmond, while teens will adore the rope swings, swimming and rocks on Belle Isle.
