Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

In the 1880s, Lewis Ginter, a wealthy businessman, opened a resort on this land just northwest of Richmond. An avid gardener, he planted and cared for much of the foliage that still thrives in the park today. Upon his death, the property passed to his niece who opened a hospice for children in Ginter's home. She also cultivated the gardens and imported several rare plants. The land is now operated by the city as a botanical garden. Explore the Victorian garden, nature trails and the home, and perhaps stop at the Tea House for lunch.

Richmond National Battlefield Park

Richmond commands much importance till today, for it served as the capital of the Confederate States of America, and an integral site during the course of the Civil War. Spanning 3,629.2 acres (14.68 square kilometers) along Virginia's coastal expanse, this historic park bears a string of nationally-significant sites including the Chimborazo Hospital, Fort Harrison, Drewry's Bluff, Tradegar Iron Works, Cold Harbor and a smattering of fortified and military remnants. The park is further accentuated by verdant, open meadows, where a melange of mammals rove along expansive, old-growth forests. It is as if the glory of the valiant Virginian soldiers yet lingers across this site, a stirring chapter which, in more than ways one, determined the fate of the country.
