About the Location

Founded in 1727, Richmond has always had a strong presence in American history. Patrick Henry famously declared “Give me Liberty or give me death” in St. John's Church in 1775. Since then, Richmond has grown into a bustling and exciting metropolitan destination! Surrounded by the famous James River, Richmond hosts multiple cultural hot-spots and countless places to grab a bite to eat. Enjoy a trip around town to explore the Edgar Allen Poe museum and local history at the American Civil War Museum. Afterwards, head to Belle Isle for a picturesque walk around the city’s beautiful island park.

When not exploring Richmond, enjoy your stay at the University of Richmond and its 350 acres of open lawns just within the city limits. The university was founded in 1830 and was the host for the first televised “Town Hall” of presidential nominees George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Ross Perot in 1992.
