Virginia's capital city is steeped in 400 years of history. The Civil War capital of the Confederate States holds mansions and museum artifacts that are a testament to the city's central role in 18th- and 19th-century American life. But this genteel southern city, with its boulevard of Civil War monuments, leafy riverside parks and languid air, is dialing up the hip quotient. With a locavore farm-to-fork movement, wide-ranging art scene and percolating nightlife fed by the city's ten colleges and universities, Richmond both honors its past and stretches toward the future.
