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?

  1. Oh, I think I like this spot best. Don't forget, you'll be spending a lot of time, ahem, “INDOORS” on your honeymoon, so a plush room is a must!!! {Yes, I went there!}

  2. Now I'm sitting here reeeeally wishing I had time to go see the Picasso exhibit. Blergh. But this looks like an amazing spot!!!

    And totally splurge on the room. It's like the one time you can justify spending a small fortune on a luxurious room, see absolutely nothing where you're vacationing, and no one will judge you.

  3. I just found your blog and I am so glad I did! This series is so fun and tugs at my Virginia heart strings…. Love!
