Bored and looking for something to do that would delight the kids? Take them to Metro Richmond Zoo, located at Chesterfield County, Virginia. This privately owned zoo is spread over 70 acres and has around 1,400 animals representing over 150 species, including the reticulated giraffe, white rhinoceros, snow leopard, cheetah and Grant's zebra. Almost all of the areas of the zoos are accessible to the public except for the Malayan tapirs and demoiselle cranes enclosures.
The Manakin Episcopal Church was built in 1700 by French Huguenots who had settled in the region. In its long history, the church building was damaged and moved many times. It was destroyed during the Civil War and then restored using the parts recovered from the original structure. Built by Lawson & Newton, the current church is a Late Gothic Revival structure. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
