(WWBT) - Richmond is one of the best "underrated, rejuvenated and out-of-this-world" places to visit in 2018, according to Lonely Planet.
The list features natural wonders, as well as up-and-coming cities. The company said their experts scoured all over the country to find the spots.
Richmond made the list at no. 7 due to the "microbreweries, cideries, and buzzworthy restaurants." Lonely Planet also noted the adventures and whitewater rapids on the James River, as well as the new 52-mile bike trail.
The website also noted the exhibits at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and Richmond's historical elements, such as the city's role as the capital of the Confederacy and St. John's Church.
Here are the other sites and cities that made the list:
California's Redwood Coast
Florida's Space Coast
Kentucky Bourbon Country
