Tourists still flock to Richmond to visit the Capitol building designed by Thomas Jefferson or to see a re-enactment of Patrick Henry’s passionate “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death”
“It used to be history” was the main tourism draw, said Jack Berry, president and CEO of Richmond Region Tourism.
“But now we have become the millennial mecca from Washington, D.C. The millennials are flocking to us to have a weekend getaway where the hotel is affordable, attractions are plentiful — we have 30 breweries — shopping is easy and the restaurants, not only are they fabulous but they are affordable,” he said.
