The Virginia State Capitol building, completed in 1788, is the seat of the oldest legislative body in the United States, the Virginia General Assembly. Believed to have been designed by Thomas Jefferson, the building is modeled on a Roman temple in Southern France, the Maison Carrée.

Set on expansive grounds in the center of the city, it sits on a hill overlooking downtown Richmond, surrounded by lobbyist and business offices.

Travel Insurance For Your Trip to United States

I never travel without travel insurance, and I've run into several situations where I've had to make claims. I consider it essential.

But shopping for travel insurance can be a pain and confusing. Thankfully, there are some travel insurance comparison sites that show you a wide range of plans, make it easy to compare coverage, and can save you money at the same time. And the coverage can be much better tailored to your specific needs than the checkbox offering at travel booking sites or through your credit card.

These are some good places to shop for travel insurance for your next trip to United States :

Hopefully, you won't need it, but if something goes wrong, you'll sure be glad you have it!
