Richmond Travel Tips

Richmond Photo info

Richmond is definitely a paradox. American history buffs celebrate it as a pivotal city in our nation's 18th-century fight for independence and our 19th-century fight to remain unified. But 21st-century Richmond is populated with textbook-laden college students, piercing-laden hipsters, Blackberry-laden young professionals and stroller-laden young families. And with them have come the boutique-y shopping areas, quirky/cute coffee houses and bars and sophisticated martini lounges and art galleries. So, please, embrace both sides of this capitol city's coin; spend a few days exploring the history and a few nights uncovering its burgeoning social scene.
