On more than a few occasions your travel companions have defined you as a “discerning traveler.” If they’re referring to your love of stunning, open landscapes and rich cultural experiences, then the shoe fits. If you believe simplicity is the finest luxury, then plan your next trip to Glen Allen, Virginia. You’ll amble through the perfect balance of rolling green hills and well-curated luxury on a small scale, just 14 miles north of downtown Richmond. Swirl and sip the offerings of the village wine community, join in the revelry of the big city, or just relax in one of the best hotels in Glen Allen, VA.
To soak up the miles of botanical brilliance, slip behind the wheel of one of our Glen Allen rental cars, only stopping for a long breath of fresh air at the Lavender Fields Herb Farm. During springtime, the lavender will be in full bloom, blanketing the fields with color and infusing the air with relaxation and buzzing honey bees. Recall that time you experimented with aromatherapy and fell asleep covered in essential oils—this could be that decadent.
Virginia is known for its stellar chardonnay, mellow merlots, and succulent oysters fresh from the Chesapeake Bay. Now, you could follow your bliss to dreamland in one of our Glen Allen hotels, or let the rush of the James River lead you to Richmond’s waterfront. What’s a traveler to do when they encounter some of the world’s most marvelous mollusks? Order extra lemon and settle in for a simple indulgence. If a full tummy and full heart are easily lulled to sleep by the river’s ebb and flow, then tuck in to one of our Richmond hotels and wake up ready a morning of glory at the historic Maymont estate.
