I got to spend a night in Richmond, Virginia before a work meeting this week. It’s a place I had only previously known as the point on Interstate 95 where we always pass the big cigarette (also know as the headquarters of Philip Morris USA).
But west of 95 and downtown, there is a several-mile area called "The Fan," which gets its name from the way the streets "fan out" from downtown. Normally, my thing is to visit new towns and rent a bike. There is no better way to see the sights. You get better views because you're going slower than a car and you can stop anytime you like. You also get to see a lot more sights than if you're walking. And you get a little exercise along with your entertainment!
