Trip Report Richmond Va

Jump to last reply

DS and I tagged along with DW to a conference at the Ramada on west broad this weekend, after looking at some schools in chapel hill. The Ramada is not a destination resort. West Broad street is not very pleasant. The Aztec Restaurant across the street was too new to have a liquor license. So no Corona.

Despite all this, it was a fun trip. Lunch at Millies, and a new cd to supplement the one we got on our last visit. Dinner at the CanCan in Cary Town. Filled with 20 and 30 something masters of the universe. I didn't see any fodorites at CanCan or Millies. They may have chosen not to identify themselves as such.

I also went to Hollywood Cemetery. Very popular place. People are dying to get in. Not that easy to get out of though. Twisty roads. Sat on a bench looking at the river.

Biked on canal walk. Walked out a little bridge over the river with sayings of people cought up in the evacuation of richmond at the end of the civil war museum. Went to civil war museum. Little stickies at the end of the museum visit allow people to post comments about the war, rascism, etc. Nutcase and nice comments there just like on fodors.

Now we're home again.
