How To Spend 48 Hours in Historic Richmond

Reuters has published their recommendations for things to do and see in Richmond during a weekend 48-hour trip!  The article is packed with suggestions, even where to stay and where to dine. ARTICLE. We agree that many of the suggestions are right-on-target and include many of Richmond’s best kept secrets, but where to stay is a little off the mark.  Hotels are the same in any city, but staying at a local bed and breakfast in a lively historic neighborhood is the best way to  get the “feel” and “vibe” of any city. Veteran bed and breakfast guests will attest that innkeepers are a wealth of local knowledge and deliver a level of personal service to which chain hotels can only aspire. Here at our Fan district bed and breakfast, we assist our guests with driving directions, parking tips, dining tips at local neighborhood eateries, even prioritizing things to do based on our guests’ interests. We might even suggest allocating a little more time than an hour at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens and adding several hours to visit the newly expanded Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.  We even offer a weekend Movie Date Special to enable our guests to catch a first run movie at a repurposed industrial building on a Friday and catch the evening showing at the Byrd the following Saturday with its Wurlitzer organ recital before the show! So, don’t just “visit” the Fan district as suggested by Reuters, stay here and get the most out of your Richmond visit and sample our hearty gourmet breakfasts!
