B and I took advantage of the long weekend to discover Richmond, and we were impressed. It’s only two hours from D.C., but the Virginia capital has such a different feel. It’s Southern, for one. And it’s really into preserving old buildings and celebrating all that is good in life (such as food!).
We checked out the city’s impressive art museum (B’s pictured here in the South Asian gallery), watched Megamind in the historic Byrd Theatre, had dessert at a happening brasserie, listened to a local band, toured the capitol building, and journeyed out to Williamsburg for a taste of colonial history. Well recommended!
