Richmond Airport Guide

Spend some time on Belle Isle, an island in the middle of the James River which has great walking and mountain biking trails. You can also swim from the shores of the island. Visit the strange sounding Shockoe Bottom, the historic part of Richmond which was badly damaged in flooding from recent hurricanes. Rebuilding and renovation is slowly beginning to bring the neighbourhood back to its former glory. Maymont Park is another great place for a walk with beautiful gardens, fountains and statues; it’s considered to be one of the finest urban parks in the US.

The airport road joins route 64 which travels west to the north of Richmond. When you reach the junction of route 95, turn south and you’ll soon be in the centre of Richmond.

Richmond Info

Richmond is a historic city and the capital of Virginia. It was first settled by émigrés from Jamestown and a small settlement was built on the site as early as 1609. The importance of Jamestown meant that the settlement dwindled and it wasn’t for another 130 years before the Richmond we know today was founded. Key industries contributed to its growth including tobacco production but it was during the Revolution that Richmond really appeared on the map with Patrick Henry’s keynote speech made their and the passing of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom. Later, the Civil War made Richmond the Confederacy capital for a time.

  • It was an important Native American settlement before the arrival of Europeans
  • Briefly occupied by settlers around 1609, it wasn’t properly settled until 1737
