    One of Richmond's favorite outdoor settings, Maymont offers walking paths, gardens and over 100 species of animals living on the grounds. Don't forget to bring quarters for the animal feed dispensers!

    Date Night is... a stroll through this gorgeous, manicured estate. It has some of the most stunning gardens ever (the Japanese Garden is not to be missed).

    Did you know? Maymont was built by millionaires James and Sallie Dooley in 1893, during the “Gilded Age” of the late 1880’s and early 1900’s. Today, the grounds and buildings remain largely unchanged. Read more

    The Japanese Gardens is where it's at, though be forewarned, in winter the waterfall is a water#fail. (I apologize for this awful joke.)

    Sprawling acreage dedicated to the wildlife of Virginia. Easy to get lost, but around the corner, could be the coveted Japanese Gardens.
