Discover Richmond

Richmond is a classy, culture-packed commercial hub on the eastern edge of Virginia's rugged Piedmont region. The city hugs the winding James River, which flows along the city's southern border and all the way to the Atlantic.

The waterway played a critical role in Richmond history, especially during wartimes and as the city established its industrial and commercial economies. Today, the river still serves as a commercial thoroughfare, though it's also a popular place for water recreation, fishing, and wildlife viewing.

Richmond dates back to the mid-1700s and serves as the state capital, with world-class restaurants and theaters and hundreds of historical sites. Surrounded by breathtaking terrain, Richmond is accessible via several major highways and the Richmond International Airport.

Washington DC and the Chesapeake Bay are within day-tripping distance, and the majestic Shenandoah National Park is less than two hours' drive away.

Book an RV rental in Richmond, and you can explore this fantastic, historically rich region. To make the most of the city's walkable downtown area and excellent parks, plan your visit between May and July, and you can enjoy warm yet comfortable temps. For vibrant foliage and crisp air, schedule a Richmond RV camping trip in October.

RV Campgrounds in Richmond

When it's time to find a place to park your camper near Richmond, you'll have options. The city's surrounded by numerous RV resorts, campgrounds, and state parks, most with excellent amenities and on-site activities.

Things to Do in Richmond

Ready to check out Richmond's urban hotspots? You should probably set aside at least a couple of days to experience them; this place is packed with attractions. Before you fuel up the Richmond motorhome rental and head for the city, it's best to plan ahead.

Richmond highways and roads are often congested, and there are lots of one-way streets throughout the city. Some of the roads near the downtown historical area are narrow and difficult to navigate, especially in an RV, so it's best to secure a parking spot in one of the public parking lots just outside of the city's center. Richmond's an extremely walkable city, so once you park, you can access most neighborhoods via the GRTC bus system, bicycles, or on foot.

Start your road trip with a tour of the city's many historical sites. The downtown area is home to famous spots like 19th-century Wickham House, the Victorian era Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site, and the renowned Byrd Theatre. Other sites to check out beyond the city center include the 1920's Tudor-style Virginia House, the reconstructed 15th-century Agecroft Hall, and the storied Walkerton Tavern in Glen Allen.

If you have kids along for the trip, consider visits to the interactive and entertaining Children's Museum of Richmond or the exceptional Metro Richmond Zoo, home to over 2,000 critters, and the Treetop Zoofari Zipline and Adventure Park. The city's also home to numerous trampoline parks, mini-golf courses, and amusement parks, so there's something for everyone in the family.

Want to experience some of the city's best outdoor attractions? Set aside some time to visit Richmond's riverfront parks. The Maymont Estate sprawls along the banks of the James River just west of downtown Richmond. Its park-like setting, children's farm, and wildlife exhibits make it an excellent place to spend a relaxing, family-friendly afternoon. Byrd Park is adjacent, and though it's not as scenic as Maymont, it still offers room to spread out and enjoy the water views.

Richmond is a welcoming city perfect for families, history buffs, and nightlife lovers alike. Search for an RV rental in Richmond, and start planning your visit to this action-packed region today.
