Celebrate more than 400 years of American heritage - all at once - with a visit to the Historic Richmond Region. Tour the site of many of the nation's most significant moments in history. Patrick Henry's famous "Give me liberty or give me death" speech. The former capital of the Confederacy. The first American hospital and U.S. canal system. America's first African-American governor. All these milestones took place here, lending to the Region's highly distinguished historical profile.
But the full breadth of Richmond tourism extends far beyond historic sites and illustrious figures from the past. Today, the Region sets a modern precedent by blending upscale shopping, fabulous restaurants, world-renowned museums and action-packed fun for all ages. Brave the gorgeous yet intense James River, which distinguishes the Richmond Region as the only urban setting with Class IV rapids. Create a vacation, weekend getaway or business trip you'll never forget.
More than six million visitors come to the Region each year. Join them!https://www.facebook.com/VisitRichmondVA
