I wish the navigation was a bit easier, but this is the most beauitful cemetery I've ever seen. It takes a while to get to Jefferson Davis's tomb, so try not to second-guess yourself if you've missed your turn! Lovely, please allow lots of time...More

So many picturesque grave sites from the austere to the magnificent. Civil war era graves, famous people, and ordinary people. Well landscaped with paved roads making it easy to traverse the huge cemetery. We drove around, but many were on bikes or walking. I would...More

After decades of living in Virginia, visited Hollywood Cemetery. It did not disappoint. Besides being the burial place of 2 Presidents, there are a number of notable people buried here. And just the sights of all the different gravestones is fascinating. What was an expected...More

Richmond is a city where you can be very safe one minute but walking one block over puts you in a dangerous area. Being that you are from the UK, I would suggest that you be cautious and careful. Walking from the Capitol to... More
