Richmond, Virginia, probably doesn’t come to mind when you think of incredible bachelor party destinations, but maybe it should. The capital city has a lot going for it, from excellent brewery tours to a vibrant nightlife and impressive outdoor culture.
Start the day with a little exercise by heading to the James River Park System. Here you’ll find plenty of options to enjoy the weather, including options for whitewater rafting. You can also rent a party boat and spend the day having drinks with the boys.
In the afternoon you’ll want to check out at least one of the numerous local breweries spread across the city. The Richmond Beer Trail covers more than 30 breweries, many of which offer tours of the facilities and, of course, tastings. A few highlights include Veil, Isley and Three Notch’d. The Scott’s Addition neighborhood offers one of the largest collections of breweries in one spot, so a walking tour is a perfect choice.
In the evening you’ll want to cut loose, so seek out some of the city’s best bars. Sine Irish Pub is perfect for an old-school rowdy atmosphere, while Southern Railway Taphouse offers a good mix of club and pub. Otherwise, head to the Shockoe Bottom neighborhood alongside the James River to find many of the city’s most popular nightclubs.
Start your day in Brooklyn with breakfast at a cozy, hidden spot — The Little Sweet Cafe. The French-inspired eatery serves sweet and savory crêpes, along with a tantalizing and seemingly endless array of pastries. Top your breakfast off with either fresh coffee or a mimosa and grab the lone table next to the window to people watch. Your breakfast will be less than $15.

So you have a layover at Vancouver International Airport. If you only have a few hours, don’t head all the way into the city; stay in Richmond (where the airport happens to be located) and have a great layover. All you have to do is take the Canada Line from the airport, with service every few minutes, and it takes you straight to central Richmond.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
