  • Richmond's Depot District tries very hard to offer places to eat and drink and several nice shops. The down side is that parking is very limited. It keeps us from visiting there very often.  more »
  • Old rundown area near the now defunct railway depot has been revitalized to be the" in" place in Richmond. Great restaurants, shops, and museums.  more »
  • Very neat off the beaten path place to visit. Beautiful murals!
  • Great selection of good restaurants for a small town historic district.
