Honeymoon Locations in the South: Part 3
In Part 3 of my series, I will now take you Richmond, Virginia to stay at The Jefferson Hotel for your honeymoon!
The Jefferson Hotel is a beautiful old hotel in downtown Richmond, Virginia.
There are many elements in the Richmond area to take in, from the Cary Street shopping district, called Carytown,
to the Museum of the Confederacy,
to the Poe House,
to the world-reknown Virginia Museum of Fine Arts,
who has just started a huge exhibition of Picasso (the only East Coast locale on this tour) that will go from now until mid-May. If you go, you MUST check out their Faberge collection - it rivals the Forbes collection in terms of eggs and photographs & frames of the Romanovs!
The Jefferson itself is a sight to behold.
The Rotunda lobby is gorgeous (which used to be a Japanese palm garden),
[note the Tiffany glass atrium]
the restaurants are the top rankings of the entire Commonwealth
and the rooms are heavenly.
What more could you ask for?
