Richmond was the first city I visited during my second U.S. trip. My friend Nat Atkins, also known as b1bob, invited me to his hometown and gave me a great tour of the place.
I found Richmond to be a fantastic place with amazing and beautiful architecture, to touch history, and to relax in its green space far from crowds of say Washington DC, Wiliamsburg or Mount Vernon. I felt there more like I was in a small town, even a village than in the capital city of Virginia.
Heritage means a sense of history. You can see it, feel it, and even taste it while walking amidst old houses and numerous monuments of local, state, regional, and national heroes and patriots. We visited the Museum of the Confederacy, the Jefferson Hotel, and walked along Monument Avenue.
I sampled delicious food in local restaurants, from Brazilian, Mexican, to local barbecue and Southern-style doughnuts for dessert.
- Pros:History and heritage, architecture, peace and quiet, food
- Cons:Works in the downtown, closed State Capitol for renovation and extension (in 2004)
- In a nutshell:Taste history in peace and quiet
