Destination guide

Virginia is for lovers, and you'll love Richmond

Set in the heart of Virginia along the winding James River, the state's thriving capital offers something for everyone. A healthy dose of that classic Southern hospitality combines with an up-and-coming food and beer scene to create a hip metropolis that somehow manages to be laid-back and cutting-edge at the same time. Surrounded by the pastoral rolling hills of the Piedmont region, Richmond is as rich in culture as it is in history. From NASCAR, to craft beer, to war history, there's a little something for everyone at a Richmond vacation rental.

Things to do

Historic Richmond: Revolutionize your vacation

History buffs are in for a treat, because a Richmond vacation rental takes you back to where our country began. St. John's Church is where Patrick Henry delivered his famous "Give me Liberty or Give me Death" speech in 1775. You can visit the graves of early presidents at Hollywood Cemetery. For thrills, head to Kings Dominion theme park or take in some NASCAR action at Richmond Raceway. Museum highlights include the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Science Museum of Virginia, and the Edgar Allan Poe Museum. Cap off your day at one of the over 20 craft breweries in town.


Redefining the great outdoors, city style

Richmond may be a busy metropolis, but if you think that means there's a shortage of outdoor activities on hand, you'd be wrong. A number of parks dot the shores of the James River, connected by miles of hiking, biking, and nature trails. The river itself is renowned for its kayaking, canoeing, and whitewater rafting. Stop by Brown's Island for its outdoor concerts and festivals, or Belle Isle for some top-notch rock climbing. Bikers should make a beeline for the Virginia Capital Trail, made up of 52 miles of paved bike paths running through the state.


In the summertime, when the weather is hot

Get ready to soak up that warm Virginia sun at your Richmond vacation rental. Summers are hot and humid, while winters are cool to cold. You'll see highs in the 80s and 90s (and possibly even the triple digits) from June through September, so pack light. Winter temps can dip below freezing between December and February, and dustings of snow are not uncommon. It can rain any time of year, but the driest period tends to be autumn, which is great for taking in the stunning fall foliage displays in October and early November.

Natural features

Green hills and blue ridges in the picture-perfect Piedmont

Sitting in the heart of Virginia's picturesque Piedmont region, downtown Richmond may be as urban as they come, but the surrounding lands are known for their idyllic, rolling green hills that rise gently to meet the impressive Blue Ridge Mountains. The James River is just one of several rivers that meander their way through the countryside. There are more trees than you can count, which is great for fall leaf peeping and friendly wildlife encounters when you need a break from city life. Of course, you'll find plenty of green space right downtown, too.
