It's easy to make your trip to Richmond all about history when you take flight to the former capital of the Confederate States and the city to first install electric streetcars in 1888. But that would mean missing out on the city's great live music events, loads of cultural and theatre performances, and scenic outdoor areas where you can go fishing, boating, or just relax and unwind by the James River.
Fans of Edgar Allan Poe should not miss out on a visit to the museum dedicated to this legendary author. Stocked with memorabilia from Poe's stay in the city, this is one of Richmond's most popular tourist haunts so get in line for tickets as early as you can to avoid a long wait. Families travelling with young children can make a trip to the city's zoo, spend a day at the Kings Dominion water park, or opt for more educational activities at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and Children's Museum of Richmond. Adults looking for more refined entertainment won't be disappointed either and can check out the latest shows on offer at the Carpenter Center for Performing Arts.

Richmond International Airport (RIC) is a single-terminal airport which has two levels and two concourses. Baggage claim and ground transportation areas are located on Level 1. For further information on the ground transportation options listed below, consult the airport's website.
From there you will have five options for getting into the city:
Public Transit: Bus routes 56 and 28 operated by Greater Richmond Transit Company connect the airport with downtown Richmond, but you might need to transfer to another route depending on your final destination. A one-way minimum fare is less than $2 USD while tickets on express routes can go up to $5 USD. If you plan on doing a great deal of travel via public transit, consider investing in a Go Card that can be topped up based on your usage, or buy a booklet of CARE tickets which get six or ten one-way fares that you can use throughout your stay. Seniors and the disabled are eligible for discounts on all tickets.
Hotel Shuttle: Most major hotels offer shuttle services to their guests arriving on Richmond flights. However, you will need to check if this pick-up service is complimentary or costs extra, and also confirm the meeting point location in advance.
Taxi: Taxi services are provided by seven local companies and can be found outside the central exit on Level 1, near the North and South parking garages. The average fare for a one-way trip to the city centre is about $25 USD.
City Shuttle: Eight rental car kiosks can be found on the lower level of the airport terminal. These are operated by companies such as Advantage, Alamo, Budget, and Enterprise, to name a few.
Chauffeured Car Services: Private operator James River Transportation has counter at the airport for passengers who want to book chauffeured sedans and limousines. You can also book these services in advance through other companies like CMC Ground Transportation and Richmond Limousine, but remember to confirm the pick-up location before you travel as most of these companies do not have on-site customer service desks.
