18 Cities That Must Be Seen in 2018

Expedia

There is always a new reason to come downtown: a restaurant opening, a store with one-of-a-kind finds, a freshly painted mural, but there is also an abundance of history to take in and experience firsthand. Lucky for us, we have the museums, guides and tours to tell you the story of our city by Segway, bike, trolley, boat or foot. There is history at every inch and corner of our historic downtown and we are eager to give you the insight of how Richmond came to be. Whatever way you like to explore: museums, self-guided trails or historic buildings that have had past presidents walk its halls, you can discover it downtown.
