Pocahontas once lived here, Warren Beatty and Shirley MacLaine were born here, Edgar Allen Poe and professional tennis player Arthur Ashe Jr. were raised in Richmond. From basketball playing rats at the Science Museum to putting live ferrets down your pants, the town is home to the NASCAR Spring Cup. Sitting on the James River, Richmond is awash in street art and is the town that celebrates anything and everything. One of America's oldest cities and steeped in history, Richmond was named as the Best United States Historical Destination. It was an independent hot bed during colonial times and the Confederate States Army Headquarters during the Civil War.
You should get out and about in this town, so make sure you have a good pair of walking shoes on. The State Capitol Building was actually designed by Thomas Jefferson, and you can walk to Monument Avenue to see larger than life stone figures of Robert E Lee, Jefferson Davis and Stonewall Jackson set amidst brilliant 19th and early 20th century buildings. Stand in the St John's Episcopal Church, where Patrick Henry uttered the famous lines, “Give me liberty or give me death”. Meander down 17th and Main Streets to catch the farmers' market, supposedly where the Native Americans once traded. Bring out the ghoul in yourself and creep around the Hollywood Cemetery where you will find the graves of 2 United States Presidents, 6 Virginia governors and countless Confederate generals and soldiers. Gawk at the Tiffany stained glass windows in St Paul's Episcopal Church dedicated to Robert E Lee or attempt to get a room at The John Marshall Hotel where the likes of Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter and Elvis Presley have put their heads on pillows. For more adventurous outdoor shenanigans, go to Maymont Park for a day and play with the animals or zone out in the Japanese Zen garden. Pound the pavement in your running shoes along the Canal Walk or take it slowly through one of the many museums.
