Make history in Richmond

Famous for its role in both the American Revolution and the Civil War, Richmond is a historic playground, full of museums and Federal-style mansions. But the city has more to offer than just history, with an eclectic culture and a world-famous culinary tradition.

Founded on the banks of the James River, it’s also a great place to whitewater raft, canoe, and hike. Whether you’re ambling the cobblestone streets or chasing unforgettable road trips, Richmond is sure to steal your heart.

Katherine-Ann was great! Very professional, smooth and easy to do business with. And she was very thorough. She even left cash for me in case my flight was delayed because the spotless Honda HRV was waiting for me in hourly parking. The only small thing was that the air conditioning in the vehicle only worked for less than 1/3 of the trip . So obviously, she didn’t know about that until I I returned the car. Luckily it wasn’t hot yet and all was good. I would definitely rent that vehicle or another from her and I highly recommend Katherine-Ann and her .5 star service!

Best Richmond driving roads

Purple squiggle

Virginia State Route 6

Also known as River Road, this route meanders along vineyards and cideries on its way from Richmond to Scottsville. With lush greenery and river views, it makes for a peaceful cruise. Spend a little while in Scottsville to enjoy its quirky, small town vibe.

Colonial Parkway

If you’re planning to explore Jamestown, Williamsburg, and/or Yorktown, hit up the Colonial Parkway. This 23-mile route connects these sites and more in an immersive drive through 400 years of America’s colonial history.

Skyline Drive

This perfect ride through Shenandoah Park offers incredible views of the Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains, which may be why it’s one of Virginia’s most popular drives. Plenty of pull-off points allow for photo opps and wildlife viewing during a multi-hour drive.
