Looking for places to go or see around Richmond area of Virginia for this August. Will be there for about 4 or 5 days. Saw the main highlights of Richmond about 15 yrs ago, including Capitol, big hotel, river/canal walk, boo jangles and shopping mall. Been to Williamsburg for two days, saw Monticelo, got short taste of Blue Ridge parkway. Anything else? Ocean, nature, wildlife, historic? Is Bush Gardens worth seeing for other than rides? Going to DC for five days after leaving Richmond. All help appreciated.
