Richmond, VA We've talked about moving there. Maybe, maybe not. Anyway, it's about 2 hours from us and feels like the first city south of us that reminds you that Virginia is considered a southern state. My favorite part is an area called Carytown which is full of vintage stores, delicious restaurants and quirky boutiques. The neighborhood surrounding it is full of brick and old apartments and duplexes with verandas. I love summer trips.
