Anything else you would like to add?

Richmond continues to surprise me. Why get on I-95 North to go to DC or NYC, when we have neighborhoods, restaurants, theatre, art, outdoor venues, and more right in our own back yard! I walk through the Fan and the Museum District all the time and think, "this is just like Brooklyn, and I'm in Richmond!"
