    From the heart of Richmond, to the Governor's Mansion in Colonial Williamsburg, the Virginia Capital Trail traverses a beautiful landscape as it parallels Route 5. The 51-mile trail travels through portions of Henrico, Charles City, and James City counties as it connects the Colonial Virginia capitals of Jamestown (1607 to 1699) and Williamsburg (1699 to 1780) to the current capital of Richmond.

    This region has been inhabited for millennia by Virginia Indians, and played a pivotal role in the first 250 years of African American and European history in the United States. It should come as no surprise that there are more than 40 historical highway markers in the vicinity of Route 5, which itself is one of the Commonwealth's most venerable byways. The Virginia Department of Historic Resources has developed the Virginia Capital Trail Historical Highway Markers Audio Tour so that you can drive or bike between Richmond and Williamsburg and listen to the stories the markers tell as you pass by. 

    Because safety is a vital concern for both motorists and bicyclists, we have deliberately eliminated any additional multimedia content to reduce distraction. Please keep your eyes on the road and the trail, enjoy the beauty of the scenic byway, and listen to the history that surrounds you.

    izi.travel has an incorrect word in the name of the video "Welcome to Virginia's Capitol Trail Audio Tour". In the trail name, the spelling is Capital (as in the capital city, not as in the capitol building)

    Tour just completed Thurs. 3/8/18. Route 5 was a beautiful drive but: Tons of construction around Shiplock Park so getting to Route 5 was a pain. Audio would only play through phone. Nearly one-half the signs just created an alert sound and no audio text due to no signal. Missed a lot of markers due to no signal so had to make mental notes and read them online when I returned. Still, a pretty drive.

    What a great idea! Very cool! I often whiz by markers and wish I could read them but am always in traffic and can't slow down and/or take my eyes off the road. Much appreciated! Can't wait to see what others will be offered.
