Richmond Flights Guide

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.
