There are so many great historical and fun sites to see in Richmond VA. I was only there for a day and it was a pleasure to drive around and see the beautiful scenery and visit a few historical sites. We saw Monument Row as well as the state capital and the Jefferson hotel.

Might I also suggest Strawberry Street Cafe for their amazing salad bar, ambiance, and really exquisite food for a reasonable price. Amigos is also very tasty if you enjoy Mexican Food.
