Sometimes adventure finds you where you least expect it. Just 30 miles south of Richmond, the district of Prince George has quite a regal name. But like the future British monarch, this patch of earth is actually small and unassuming—and a little rugged. Leave your eveningwear and gala-best behind and embark on an adventure along the historic Appomattox River. Don’t be fooled by the suburban exterior either—you’ll soon be kayaking upstream and exploring nearby wildlife refuges. Book one of our hotels in Prince George, VA and leave yourself open to new experiences.
From Prince George, the best cityscapes and lapping waterfronts are your oyster—and yes, there are plenty oysters to be devoured this close to the coast as well. Slide behind the wheel of one of our rental cars in Prince George and navigate your way through the great outdoors to a kayaking tour of the local waterways. Start slicing through the rushing Appomattox, paddling your way to the raging James River, which runs out to the Atlantic. Before you reach the sea, stop for a hike through the James River Wildlife Refuge and cast a line off a secluded dock. You’ll eat like a king or queen when you catch your own smallmouth bass supper. Then, relax away the long, full days in your Prince George hotel near the waterfront.
Even if you have been to Richmond before, you can still see—or rather, taste—the city from a new perspective. To partake of “the River City’s” finest, don’t be afraid to think out of the box (or the truck) and sample stellar offerings from old school shrimp and grits to international fusions. Southern kitchens practically invented the food coma, and our Richmond hotels will be there when the sensation strikes.
