Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.
Maymont is an American estate, situated on 100 acres overlooking the James River in Richmond, Virginia. We invite you to take a walk on the paths, visit the gardens, enjoy the wildlife, explore the mansion or just sit under a lively tree and think you will see why this is one of Richmond’s enduring treasures.
