Hollywood Cemetery

Founded in 1847, Hollywood is one of the oldest cemeteries in Richmond. Confederate President Jefferson Davis, General J.E.B. Stuart, Presidents James Monroe and John Tyler, novelists James Branch Cabel and Ellen Glasgow, and 18,000 Confederate soldiers, 11,000 of them unknown, are a few examples of the historical figures buried here. Hollywood has the city's best view of the James River. When the cemetery was first established, neighbors declared that the rushing of the falls would, literally, wake the dead. Guided tours are available on the last Sunday of each month through October.

James River and Kanawha Canal Historic District

The canal that was built to favor the passengers who traveled through the water ways was the James River and Kanawha Canal. Although frequently destroyed by the floods, the canal stood still in its appearance and continues to serve the passengers. This canal is spread over 138 acres (56 hectares) and is a great visiting place for the tourists. If you are still debating whether or not to visit, keep in mind that it is listed on the register of National Historic Places in the year 1971. The public pathway is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

St. John's Church

It was here that the Virginia Convention of 1775 met to discuss the question of taking arms against the British. One of the oldest wooden buildings in Virginia, delegates to the Convention - including Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and Patrick Henry - had convened in this very spot. And it was here where Patrick Henry gave his famous speech and said the following famous lines: "Give me liberty, or give me death!" Visitors can reenact this experience by watching the live performances offered by professional actors and further enrich their knowledge of history by visiting the city's first public cemetery.

St. Paul's Episcopal Church

Still an active church, St. Paul's was built in 1845. Visit here and stand on the spot where, in 1865, Confederate President Jefferson Davis was told Union troops were advancing on Richmond, a pivotal event of the Civil War. Another famous Richmond native who worshiped at St. Paul's was Edgar Allen Poe. He claimed to have left a valise, the location and contents of which remain an intriguing local mystery in the building.

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery

One of the most renowned breweries in the city, Hardywood Park Craft Brewery puts Virginia on the beer map of the country with its fabulous collection of local brews. With most of the ingredients sourced from within the state, each batch of brews is infused with the essence of Virginia. At the taproom, visitors can sample up to five brews, along with a selection of rare and seasonal ones. Regular tours of the brewery offer an insight into the various processes involved in brewing the finest batch of beer.

Joseph Bryan Park

The Bryan Park is a prime historic park in the northwest of the city. Spread over a large area, the park offers an array of hiking and biking tracks. Another promising feature is the Joseph Bryan Park Azalea Garden. It boasts of over 450,000 azalea plants of roughly 50 varieties, as well as a small pond with a fountain. The park also features a well-designed golf course. It also hosts cultural events and festivals throughout the year. Admission is free, and in this fast-paced world of gadgets, a visit can revive your mind and soul.
