Richmond, VA - Lots of Questions.

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Norfolk, VA for 5 wks in mid April though mid May and are planning an excursion to Richmond. From my reading, it looks like Richmond has lots to offer and that a day trip is probably not enough to appreciate the city.

What would be a reasonable amount of time to spend there? Would two nights make sense? We are fairly leisured travelers and don't pack a great deal into a day. Any time of the week better, that is mid week vs the weekend?

Also, looking at the Linden Row Hotel as a place to stay, The price seems about right for our budget - under $200 a night. Is this a good location? Any other hotel suggestions? We prefer to park our car and either walk or take public transit.. Is the area safe?

Ideas on your favorite attractions? I love architecture, looking at bldgs and interesting museums.

Finally, we're into healthy eating, prefer vegan cooking if possible. Any suggestions there?

Thanks.
