Hipmunk Hotels: The Very Best Boutique Stays in Richmond

The capital of Virginia, Richmond is one of the oldest and most interesting cities in the U.S. The Confederate States Army headquarters is situated there, and it’s now a museum which attracts a steady number of visitors each year. Even though Richmond is the capital of Virginia, its population is only just over 200,000 people, and it’s often overlooked as a tourist destination, making it a lot less crowded than popular cities like New York and Los Angeles. So, whether you’re into history, art, shopping or nature, Richmond is a low-key city full of historical stories that have something for everyone.
