Richmond, VA Easter Weekend 2008

Spent a pleasant Easter weekend in Richmond, VA before traveling on to D.C. Visited VCU campus and strolled around the Fan District taking these pics. It was a very beautiful weekend. Enjoy.
















































































The food and the atmosphere here at Kuba Kuba is great.



Next stop Union Station. Richmond to D.C. was approx 2 hours.

During the American Civil War, Richmond served as the capital of the Confederate States of America
Anyway the city looks very historical for an american standards

Thanks for the pics. Im actually in Richmond (i go to VCU) but i've never actually gotten around to photographing the place....

Its kind of weird for me to be able to know exactly where you were standing when each of those pics were taken. LOL

I love the pics from Franklin Ave. and the Fan district...i love that architecture.

I love Richmond. It's such a beautiful contrast of a big city and the old South.

It's only an 17 hour drive from here, and the trees were blooming on an early Easter. Our blooming season is in early May. It's still frigid and snowy here.

Awesome pics.

Not really of any talls but there is quite a bit of construction going on. Mostly downtown (not really seen in any of those pics). Also quite a bit of restorations of older structures....frustrating to be downtown sometimes...but its worth it.......
