An economically progressive city and Virginia's capital, Richmond offers a wealth of amenities not easily found among other East Coast municipalities. Here in Richmond more than 400 years of history live on through magnificent architecture, monument-lined cobblestone streets, and world-class museums.
But the area makes history in other ways too. There's the scenic James River, which distinguishes the Richmond Region as the only urban setting with Class IV rapids - just one form of outdoor
recreation for thrill seekers.
Explore the Greater Richmond Convention Center, as well as more than 16,000 hotel rooms, which make the area a prime destination for meetings and groups. With more than 900 restaurants, diverse shopping and enticing events, Richmond is always in good taste for weekend getaways and vacations too. For the five million who visit each year, Richmond is increasingly recognized for many distinguished yet unheralded qualities long enjoyed by those who already live here.

SKYLINE DRIVE... The Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park and is the only public road through the park. You can enter Shenandoah at four places: Front Royal near Rt. 66 and 340, Thornton Gap at Rt. 211, Swift Run Gap at Rt. 33, and Rockfish Gap at Rt. 64 and Rt. 250 (also the northern entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway). It takes about three hours to travel the entire length of the park on a clear day.
As you travel along Skyline Drive you will notice mileposts on the west side (right side if you are traveling south) of the road. These posts help you find your way through the park and help you locate areas of interest. The mileposts begin with 0.0 at Front Royal and continue to 105 at the southern end of the park.
The speed limit is 35 mph, so you can roll down your windows, feel the breeze and experience every curve and turn of this beautiful drive. There are 75 overlooks that offer stunning views of the Shenandoah Valley to the west or the rolling Piedmont to the east. The park purposely leaves the roadsides unmowed so wildflowers put on a show all year long.
