Located just west of Short Pump, Goochland is such a beautiful area that it was once home to Thomas Jefferson. Today, its rural scenery and small-town warmth make Goochland the ideal destination for those who want land and don’t mind driving a little out of the way to get there. Still, Goochland has plenty to offer in the way of liveliness, with breweries, wineries, cideries, and a drive-in movie theater to boot.


  • Goochland Drive-In Theater, the only drive-in movie theater in the greater Richmond area
  • Scenic rural landscapes
  • Many parks and outdoor recreational activities
