Weekend Getaways In Virginia

Richmond, VA On A Tank Or Less

Just as we all started to recover from Covid and start going on vacations again, gas prices shot up. But don’t let that make you cancel your vacation this year, especially if you're within driving distance of the region of Richmond, Virginia. Chances are you're probably less than one tank of gas away from some great memories.

And when you vacation in the Richmond region, you aren’t limited to a single city. Here you can explore four counties, two cities and one town that include everything from the great outdoors to urban chic, all within less than one hour's drive in any direction.

That’s a lot of family-friendly attractions, thriving arts and cultural venues, historic landmarks and experiences, outdoor activities (including those on and around the James River), a great food and craft beer scene to explore, and some fantastic hotels where you can rest after a long day.
