Richmond: Modern Capital City
Richmond, the capital city of Virginia, has a largely traditional look but a very modern feel. The cultural offerings here are plentiful and fascinating. The Richmond Ballet , Richmond Symphony and Virginia Opera all have year round programs and offer a guaranteed good time. To see some of the most progressive dance, music, and drama being performed today, catch a performance at the Carpenter Center for the Performing Arts. The Children's Museum of Richmond is a great stop for the little ones, since active exploration of the exhibits is encouraged."
