The best spots in Richmond, Virginia

Richmond is the capital of the state of Virginia. Situated two hours south of the United States capital, the historical city of Richmond, VA makes for the perfect day trip for all to enjoy. From incredible restaurants to fascinating museums, Richmond, Virginia is a fun place to enjoy with friends, family, a significant other or even by yourself!

Located on the east-central part of the state, at the head of the James River, Richmond was first founded by Christopher Newport and John Smith in 1607. It became a trading post in 1637 and then Fort Charles was built there in 1733. During the American Revolution, Richmond was replaced by Williamsburg as Virginia State Capital. (Jamestowne was the capital before Williamsburg.) In the Revolutionary War, Richmond was made the capital because Williamsburg was too accessible to the British Navy. Throughout the Civil War, Richmond was also considered the capital of the Confederacy.

Over the years, Richmond has been known for its tobacco, printing and publishing manufacturers, pharmaceuticals, colleges and universities. Today, it is a beautiful city that thrives in diversity, culture, arts and nature.

A Day in Richmond, VA - Top Things to do

Traveling to Richmond:

The city of Richmond, Virginia

Getting to Richmond, Virginia is easy. If you are on an East Coast road trip, you can easily reach the capital by driving on Interstate 95, which goes through the city.

Even though you can get around the city of Richmond by Uber, Lyft, taxis and the GRTC public bus, it is easiest to explore the area by having your own vehicle. Unless you have an organized way to get around, it is most convenient to rent a car during your time in Richmond.

Another great way to get to Richmond, Virginia is by taking the train or bus from other large U.S. cities and if you’re coming from a faraway destination, it’s best to take a flight into Richmond International Airport. You can find affordable flights through Skyscanner.

One of the best places to stay in Richmond, VA is the charming Linden Row Inn, which is A Great American Inn that is in the heart of downtown.

A top reason why Linden Row Inn is deemed famous is because the courtyard of the hotel is where American writer Edgar Allan Poe played with friends growing up. In fact, the garden at the Inn is mentioned in one of Poe’s poems called “To Helen”. It is also said that the gardens are where Poe first courted his first love, Elmira Royster. (Situated near the hotel is the Edgar Allan Poe Museum, which is also a great place to visit in RVA.)

Overall, Linden Row Inn is the perfect place to stay in the capital city! Linden Row Inn is a 70-room boutique historic hotel that features luxury and charm. It’s also close to all the major attractions in the capital area.

Linden Row Inn is made up of seven row houses that were built in the 1800s. They have been restored over the years to feature modern amenities.

What is great about doing the Canal Walk is that you can easily access it from Linden Row Inn, which is in the Shockoe Bottom area.

The Fan District:

If you’re someone who also loves colorful houses and buildings, you must also walk through the Fan District during a day trip in Richmond, VA. During my recent trip to Richmond, my mom and I strolled through the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University where we eventually reached the Fan.

This residential area is a great place to not only see the beautiful mid-19th Century homes, but it’s also a wonderful neighborhood to bike ride through, shop and enjoy a lovely restaurant. Some of the top eateries to visit in The Fan are Lamplighter Roasting Company, The Fancy Biscuit, Fresca on Addison and Bombolini Pasta.

Whether you are spending a day or weekend in Richmond, VA, one of the best spots to enjoy beautiful views of the capital city is at Libby Hill Park.

This picturesque park is perfect to watch the sunset in Richmond and to also enjoy a picnic! There are also beautiful flower gardens and a fountain to admire at this spot and it makes for great pictures.

A mimosa from The Riviere in Richmond

There are a lot of cool places to go out at night in Richmond, VA. Overall, this city is a great destination to visit with girl friends for a bachelorette party, birthday or even a college reunion (in my case).

From the Richmond Beer Trail to speakeasies, there is something for everyone’s nightlife preference in RVA. Some of the best places to go out at night in Virginia’s capital are below:

Learn about Virginia’s History:

Touring the Virginia Capitol during a day in Richmond, VA

Like I mentioned above, Richmond is a historical city and I highly recommend visiting a museum during your trip there. Below are the top museums, tours and places to go sightseeing in Richmond, Virginia:

Edgar Allan Poe Museum:

Located near Linden Row Inn, in the Shockoe Bottom neighborhood, The Poe Museum is an educational place to visit during a day in Richmond, VA.

Edgar Allan Poe was born to traveling actors, David and Eliza Poe. His father abandoned the family and his mother died of tuberculosis when he was a young child. He was then taken in by John and Frances Allan.

Poe fell in love with Elmira Royster and ended up getting engaged to her. He then attended the University of Virginia in Charlottesville and during that time, his fiancé left him to be with another man. Poe ended up in debt and left the university.

The American poet ended up moving to Boston where he published his first book of poetry. He then joined the Army and went to West Point. It wasn’t long until he ran into financial issues again during his time in the military. Afterwards, he ended up moving to Baltimore.

After moving back to Richmond a few years later, Poe joined the Southern Literary Messenger and ended up getting married. From there, he moved to Philadelphia where he enjoyed his prime years of literature. His contribution to horror is what makes him famous today.

At the museum, you can learn all the details of Edgar Allan Poe’s life and his literary work.

American Civil War Museum:

Since Richmond was also the capital of the Confederacy, there is a museum where you can learn all about the Civil War, the significance it holds and the complexities we face today in American society.

To visit the ACWM, it costs $18 USD for an adult ticket; $16 USD for students, teachers, senior citizens and veterans; $9 USD for children ages 6-17 and it is free for members, Virginia public school students and teachers as well as young children under 6 years old.

Richmond Ghost Tour:

For the thrill seekers enjoying a weekend in Richmond, VA, I recommend making time to do a haunted tour! Richmond has a lot of history and there is also a dark side to the city that is fun to explore with Haunts of Richmond!

For those planning to do a ghost tour of Richmond, you can choose to explore Shockoe Bottom, which is the oldest and most haunted neighborhood in the capital; Church Hill, which is the birthplace of the American Revolution and home to a notorious Civil War spy; Capitol Hill; Franklin Street and more. You can also participate in a haunted pub crawl as well as a tuk tuk tour!

To participate in the haunted tour, it costs $20 USD for adults and teens ages 13 and older, if you book online, and $15 USD for kids ages 5-12. It is one of the top unique things to do in Richmond.

Virginia State Capitol:

Another educational place to visit in Richmond is the Virginia State Capitol. Designed by President Thomas Jefferson, you can enjoy free, one-hour guided tours daily where you can admire the prestigious interior details of the capitol building, the original marble statue of President George Washington and also check out the dedicated monuments.

Enjoy the Best Restaurants in Richmond, VA:
