Maymont, a picturesque Victorian estate located in Richmond, is surrounded by an arboretum, Japanese gardens, a children's farm and a 40-acre nature center. Not bad.

Maymont's nature center offers a look into the creatures native to Virginia. Bring your camera to capture the 20-foot waterfall that fills the large aquariums that the otters, turtles and fish call home. You can also hit the easy button with a tram ride around the estate, available June through August.
In the wildlife center, you can see creatures native to Virginia... including the bobcat!
