Richmond is a great city for food, and is one of the most beautiful cities to visit in the springtime. Cherry Street is hip and youthful, while the Museum District and Carytown (the area that comprises Cary Street) are well worth visiting for not only historical enrichment, but seeing some of the city's best architecture. Here you can visit the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and see works of art created by Francisco Goya and Pablo Picasso.
You can also visit the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in the West End. The West End is a great spot for shopping, eating out, and enjoying a drink in the Virginian weather. Carytown is also part of the West End. The West End is where you'll want to spend the majority of your time and where you're likely to meet fellow travelers and friendly locals alike.
For a great scenic drive, you can travel along the Colonial James River via The Plantation Road. This is a 55-mile drive that extends from Richmond and goes all the way to Williamsburg. Whether you want to spend a day in the historical city of Williamsburg, this is a scenic drive you won't want to miss out on. Also, Richmond is less than 2 hours away from Virginia Beach. When you travel along the I-64 West from Richmond, you can have a day at the beach and be back in Richmond for dinner.
George Washington and Jefferson National Forest is just under 3 hours away when you travel from Richmond along I-64 East. George Washington and Jefferson National Forest is a gorgeous setting that's ideal for hiking, biking, and fishing, and because of its short distance from Richmond, you can be in the Virginian outdoors in no time at all.
