You may want to stay the night to independently tour the city and all that it has to offer both historically and recreationally. We’ve compiled a list of interesting things for you here.  Within city limits is the James River Park System that includes nearly 550 acres lining both banks of the James River and the beautiful grounds of Maymont.

Within one mile of VCU’s Monroe Park campus is the newly expanded Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The museum recently completed a $150 million expansion which makes it the 10th largest comprehensive art museum in the country. The museum is open 10 am – 5 pm daily with evening hours extended until 9 pm on Thursdays and Fridays. General admission is free.
