  Shockoe Slip
by b1bob

Favorite thing: Shockoe Slip is defined by cobblestone streets and a 19th century air put right up against the postmodern high-rise buildings in the adjoining financial district. It has an eclectic mix of restaurants (such as Morton's Steakhouse, Europa, Rivah Bistro, and the Tobacco Company) and shops, some of which are very upscale. It runs from Cary and Canal Street (north-south) to 10th to 15th Street (east-west). Recently, developpers have converted old warehouses to store and living space.
