When I say "Richmond" what is the first thing that comes to mind? Here's what I usually hear: Confederates, cigarettes, and "doesn't I-95 run right through it?".
Not exactly the most flattering picture. But I'm here to tell you that yes, Richmond may be the home of the biggest cigarette company in the world and the former capital of the Confederacy, but it's so much more than that!
These are some of my favorite Richmond things.
