Outdoor enthusiasts unite! This state park is practically in my backyard and a great place for hiking, swimming, biking, etc. There is fishing, camping and truly some amazing views. Download the AllTrails app and try to tackle them all. There are trails for everyone to enjoy and even a couple fun little playgrounds for the kids. One of which is near the huge swim center, which is an extra fee to use.

Henricus Historical Park

Reviewed By Dizymaus - Chester, Virginia

Very interesting for all history buffs. This is where the settlers that left Jamestown ended up. Reenactors dress in period clothing and answer questions, talk about various displays. There is an archeologic dig site and various artifacts are on display. Worthwhile, less staged than Jamestown, less crowded and cheaper, highly recommend.

Maymont

Maymont is a 100-acre American estate, an extraordinary gift given to the community by James and Sallie Dooley who lived there from 1893 to 1925. Whether strolling in the gardens, touring the mansion, watching river otters at play, or petting a goat, there is something for everyone to enjoy. NEW! Golf cart tours are now available. Explore the rolling hills and winding path with ease with a personal tour guide!

I've had pleasant visits to Maymont in the past, but this last time will have me choosing to go elsewhere in the future. The groundskeeper kept using his bullhorn to repeatedly announce that the grounds closed at 5 and that the gates would be locked. There were only a few people left, and we did clear out by 5, but he was so aggressive it bordered on obnoxious. If he had talked to the few groups individually or even prefaced his requests with a "please" it would have been much less objectionable.

I have not been since the renovation...very nice elevator if needed....food was much improved over last time...the meatloaf was ok...mac and cheese very good...I had the soup and that was very good...the apple betty with ice cream was delicious...the show Hallaluhah Girls was very funny...great actors in this one....the only item to mention was the line to the buffet...they should either have two stations or send tables up a few at a time...the line was about 50-75 deep and you have to wind your way thru servers other people with food and stand over people eating..I am sure they did not find it pleasant either...but again not a complaint just a mention the evening was very enjoyable....thank you!!

This place is convenient to where we live... So that plays a part in my rating. They have various passes, to include one for $99, I think 18 punches, that doesn't expire and can be used by anyone. This is cool because we could go as a family, and then can send the kids at a later date. One of the punches can be used for 75 balls at the driving range... Which I think is a fairly good deal, includes clubs. They also have put-put, batting cages, go carts, and outdoor laser tag. The go carts are hit or miss. Some of them feel like the wheels are just going to fall off (I was actually scared), some are significantly faster than others, and the attendants seem to know which ones are fast/slow. The outdoor labor tag was an exciting concept to us, but we tried on 3 different occasions to join a game with no luck. They start every hour on the hour, but a couple of the times we went there were not enough people to get the game going. It was also strange because there didn't seem to be anyone working out there, so we couldn't even tell if we were in the right place. So I can't say that the laser tag is bad or good... But I'd suggest getting a big group of friends together to go.

Virginia Holocaust Museum

Founded to educate the community about the tragedies of the Holocaust, the Virginia Holocaust Museum strives to memorialize and document the atrocities of World War II. Through exhibits, programming, and outreach, the Museum uses the history of genocide to teach the dangers of prejudice and indifference.

Reviewed By nova654 - mclean, va

We recently visited this museum when we had a few hours to fill. Surprisingly interesting museum, especially for a free venue. One aspect I especially enjoyed was the fact that there were videos with containing stories of holocaust survivors that now live in Richmond. Many other interesting facts and pictures. One can spend 2.5 - 3 hours easily

Parker's Battery

Reviewed By RE B - Chesterfield, Virginia, United States

The passage of time is reflected by the industrial nature of all that surrounds this little area where Parker's Battery was emplaced. CPT Parker commanded this field artillery battery known as the "Boy Company" during the American Civil War. A short trail leads to where the guns were laid. The fortifications/earthworks are in excellent shape given time and nature. This small area has a peaceful feel to it...excellent place to reflect upon the sacrifices made by a certain of young Richmonders during that time.

Hollywood Cemetery

Reviewed By FamSiam V

I went through on a chilly but sunny Sunday morning, and mostly had the place to myself. A walk would be very feasible, but because I had limited time, I drove - which was also doable. There’s no great parking near key most grave sites, but adequate room throughout to pull over and park for a few minutes. The history here is incredible, and of course complex. Take a picture of the stone map at the entrance to navigate the cemetery or use a guidebook on your smart phone. In addition to the presidential graves (ponder the fact that as of 2018, John Tyler, our 10th President, born in 1790, still has two living grandsons!), check out the memorial for the tragic Confederate figure, Major General George Pickett (of Pickett’s Charge infamy at Gettysburg); his wife was the first woman interred in the confederate section.

Dutch Gap Conservation Area

Reviewed By Terijo A

Ask to speak to Mark Battista, great coordinator for this awesome experience. Get together a group of friends (10-15) everyone pays about $15-$20pp...and that includes ALL your gear and guides! They spend some time teaching about these top water kayaks, how to paddle, and then you're off! No experience needed. They take you through a "graveyard" some marsh flats, to a rope swing, lots of birds and flora to see...it's a fabulous experience. I know they offer night excursions too...we are hoping to book one for our family soon. We've booked a day trip for several years in a row, always a great experience. We also bring our lunches, and once we get back to our vehicles, we walk out to "the bluff" and enjoy a shaded picnic area with an outstanding view.
