Richmond, the capital city of Virginia, is one of the oldest major cities in the US, and as such, boasts a rich history. It was here, in 1775, that Patrick Henry, one of the US’ founding fathers, famously declared, “Give me liberty or give me death”, one of the events leading to the Revolutionary War. You are ‘at liberty’ to visit Richmond at any time of the year, but you’ll find the best weather conditions during the spring, between March – May when temperatures are moderate, ranging from 55 – 88 degrees Fahrenheit. In summer, the combination of high temperatures and humidity can be enervating. Despite this, summer is peak tourist season, so flights are more expensive, and hotels are busy, so book in advance if you’re visiting then. From September – November, temperatures return to moderate and there’s more precipitation and wind, making this season less popular with tourists, so you may find cheap flights and deals on accommodation. During winter, it’s even quieter, with daily high temperatures reaching only 48-58 degrees Fahrenheit, and frequent rain or snow. Plan your holiday now, if your main goal is to beat the crowds and save money, just avoid the Christmas season.
