road trip-stopping in Richmond - cheap hotels in good areas?

by thoth

Friend and I are tentatively planning a road trip with stops in Richmond, Charlotte, and Atlanta. Curious about Richmond hotels that anyone would recommend. Nothing fancy, just a place to sleep a night. Any areas of Richmond to definitely avoid. Thank you.

RE: road trip-stopping in Richmond - cheap hotels in good areas?

by Hopkid

Most of the hotels in the Innsbrook area (Hilton, Courtyard, Holiday Inn Express, others) are fairly new and in a nice area just a few miles west of downtown. I would recommend the area west of downtown over any other direction. Definitely don't stay at the midtown Days Inn or Holiday Inn. They're in serious need of updating last I heard. The Embassy Suites in town is also nice. Try Hotwire or Priceline and choose the area west of downtown and see what rates you get.

Good luck!

Travel Tips for Richmond

Capitol Extension

by b1bob

From late 2004 through to spring 2007, Capitol Square underwent a massive renovation. That's why I couldn't take some of y'all on a Capitol tour when you came to Richmond. Visitors used to enter the Capitol building from the west side, pass through security scrutiny, and begin the tour. We arrived at the Capitol on a hot, sunny Thursday afternoon and stand in the new, modest-sized semicircular plaza that has been carved out of Capitol Hill on Bank Street near 10th. The lobby area is circular and the built-in information counter is set opposite the front door and is crafted from the same stone as that used on the building's exterior. Carved into the curved stone walls above the desk is a 1789 quote from Thomas Jefferson: "Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government." Double doorways on each side of the desk lead into the core of the building. One of these doorways on each side is dedicated to security scrutiny. A little ways ahead, there is a gift shop on the left and loos on the right. The walls throughout the area are from limestone that was quarried in Israel. The first place where the street widens is immediately beyond the gift shop. Here a large space awaits the installation of a permanent history exhibition. Temporarily, a number of large display panels provide an architectural history of the Capitol. Finally, visitors arrive at a grand stairway. On the left at the top of the monumental staircase is Meriwether's at the Capitol. Following the curved right-hand wall of the atrium is another grand staircase that leads to a space directly under the front steps of the Capitol. This is a good point at which to turn around and see the distance you've traveled and enjoy the view from this high vantage point. I like the concept of a visitors centre and a subterranean passage to the Capitol building itself, but the modern style of the new part clashes with, rather than complements, the old style of the Capitol. The metal frame for the Capitol's 1886 steam-powered lift was discovered and turned into a stairwell during the Capitol's 2004–07 restoration. The decorative frame, nicknamed "the birdcage" outlines an open shaft extending from the Capitol's first floor to its skylit roof.

Final resting places of some famous people

by b1bob

Richmond is noted for its history, so it follows that some famous historic figures would be buried here. The picture only has room for three. George Wythe was the first Virginian to sign the Declaration of Independence. He was also the first teacher of law in the colonies and Thomas Jefferson was among his students. Wythe is buried at St. John's Church Cemetery (as is Edgar Allen Poe's mama). Hollywood Cemetery is permanent home to President of the Confederacy Jefferson Davis and 5th U.S. President James Monroe. John Tyler (10th President) is not pictured, but is also buried at Hollywood Cemetery.

History is important to any...

by DrewV

History is important to any understanding of Richmond, but Richmonders are also determined to look beyond its history. That said, the number one thing not to discuss with a Richmonder is not the Civil War or slavery. It's tobacco. You see, Richmond is the world headquarters of Philip Morris, the world's largest maker of tobacco products. It's kind of a sticky subject.

Don't forget the IRL!!!

by ahuimanu

Most of the other tips mention the two NASCAR races that happen at RIR in late Spring and late Summer (usually May and September). However, the BEST RACING AT RIR happens in June!!! If you've never seen the Indy Racing League, then you are in for a treat! This North-American open-wheel series might appeal to fans of formula one. The crowd is about 1/3 the size of the NASCAR race and the tickets are also about 1/3 the price as compared to the NASCAR race. However!!! The cars go 40 to 50 MPH faster and the racing is generally more exciting. Don't get me wrong, the NASCAR races are fun, but the IRL is tops! Fun. Don't bring backpacks.

Pocahontas State Park

by wachman

Pocahontas State Forest is a wildlife preserve that has camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, biking, and canoeing. A great place to get away from it all. The park is located 20 miles south of the city in Chesterfield County on Beach Rd.
