Planning a getaway? Visit one of America’s oldest major cities with low-cost, nonstop Allegiant flights from PGD to RIC!

Richmond, Virginia is the perfect spot for history buffs! Stop by St. John’s Church where Patrick Henry made his famous “give me liberty or give me death,” speech in 1775. The church remains active and open to visitors for guided tours.  Ever wonder what life was like 400 years ago? Take a step back in time and visit Henricus Historical Park. This park recreates what everyday life was like in the “Citie of Henricus,” the second successful English settlement in the New World.

Beer is a big draw in Richmond. After all, it was the first place where beer was sold in a can back in 1935! So come quench your thirst at the Richmond Beer Trail. Navigate through almost 40 craft breweries and get your trail map stamped along the way. Once you’ve collected five stamps and you’ll earn limited-edition Richmond Beer Trail gear.

Also check out the Edgar Allen Poe Museum, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and more!
