Richmond is a very cool city, with a lots of Historical scenery. But need to be bigger and more stadiums and concert venues that way more celebrities want to come here and it is a REAL city. However, as for arts, gardens, and food Richmond is considered a wonderful city! Plus close to DC, the beach and mountains.
I had a great time in Richmond. Though I was visiting a sick relative, Cary Town, Byrd Park and the areas around VCU were quite hospitable.
