Your rating: None


Maymont, located in Richmond, Virginia, is an all-day outing for families, couples, walkers - anyone with an appreciation of nature. Families will appreciate the animal reserve, where you can see a variety of birds, mammals, and reptiles. Couples get married at Maymont and may just enjoy the wide open grassy spaces and beautiful garden. Walkers can increase their mileage using the many trails that twist, climb, and dip.

See the waterfalls, old carriages, and famous "Maymont House". Feed the animals, picnic in the gazebo, boat at Byrd Park, and just take it all in. Tips: A sunny spring day is likely the best time to go, before the heat is overwhelming and water is a necessity. Backpacks for babies are better than strollers on the paths, which dip and climb somewhat steeply and don't all allow for stroller width.
