Richmond Virginia Trip


With summer in full swing, there are many excellent sites to see throughout the USA.

Richmond Virginia is one of them. Since 2008, I have had the good pleasure of visiting Virginia from Richmond to Leesburg and have enjoyed many wonderful sites of the State. my friend Katie and I have seen many historical sites in various places of the state (Monticello, James Madison Plantation, Edgar Allan Poe Museum, Chatam House, James River Canal Rides, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, The Virginia Historical Society to name but a few), Sports (The Richmond Flying Squirrels – The team is a part of the Eastern League, is the Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants major league club, and plays at The Diamond.), Virginia Beach (beautiful sand, excellent swimming conditions in the Atlantic Ocean), The Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden (a beautiful site to see with its fantastic gardens located throughout the grounds and its greenhouse).

Richmond has developed itself again into an beautiful area. Over the last few years, it has undergone a major citywide beautification project to bring more tourism, enhancing itself city wide. it also held a major world wide bicycle competition in 2016. Whether its the arts and entertainment, a walk through the city, visiting the parks, music and the arts or sports, there is always something to see and do.

In late July, I will again visit one of my favorite places on Earth and enjoy my time with my good friend Katie.DSC_3616.JPGDSC_3645.JPG
