      First timer in Virginia

      Richmond Feb 2, 2016 at 11:19 AM

      Someone just told me how wonderful Richmond is, and that so intrigued me that I made reservations for my husband and I to visit Virginia for a week. We're flying into Richmond, and will rent a car and drive around to the various historical sites. We're from Chicago, so know how to handle ourselves in a city with "iffy" neighborhoods, so that part doesn't bother us.

      My question (after all of that) is how much time should we give Richmond? One, two or three days? We also will go to Williamsburg, maybe Fredericksburg and Alexandria. In Richmond, any suggestions as to where to stay? We'll have a car, so of course won't want to pay an arm and a leg for parking.

      Any suggestions you native Virginians can give us will be appreciated. I can go to the Virginia tourism site, of course, but those sites always make everything look so good even when it's not.
