The Richmond region is blessed with four distinct seasons: sun-kissed summers, delightful falls, mild winters and sunny springs. This means the Richmond VA gardens show off in different ways all year long.

Stroll the picturesque grounds of Maymont, a historic estate with glorious gardens, a nature center and children’s farm (also alligators, they have alligators) and a Victorian mansion that gets all gussied up for the holidays. The VMFA Sculpture Garden features Dale Chihuly’s “Red Reeds” and offers the perfect green space for kids, dogs, even yoga.
