Richmond is the capital of the beautiful state of Virginia. It is also one of Americas oldest city. There are tons of activities for the whole family to enjoy, for nature lovers, and for young and the not so young.
Here is a short list just to mention some, there is a Holocaust Museum, a Botanical Garden, the Museum of Fine Arts, The State Capitol, designed by Thomas Jefferson that you can tour for free. And also, the Hollywood Cemetery, (for those interested).
Furthermore, there is the Arts District, and Carytown; the city’s trendiest area with restaurants and bohemian boutiques, but most importantly, the local quirky shop alternatives, totally different to the shops that we are used to frequent, (of course, except Starbucks, smile). Unfortunately, I also heard that Carytown restaurants are overpriced, therefore, be cautious.
Finally, Richmond, like most cities in the country have a large convention center, a beautiful coliseum and plenty of lodging places for all budget levels.
Richmond is also the home of Virginia Commonwealth University, VCU, one of the many outstanding Virginia universities. (Incidentally, I know a nice young and good looking dentist who graduated from VCU, right Ricky? Smile.)
Ok friends, is time to pack your bags to go visit Richmond.
