Visiting Virginia?

Okay, I am your friend from FC,(please read the fine print) I just let you know that I am touring the U.S. and I would like you to be my tour guide for Virginia!

I need to make an itinerary, I want to make good use of my time of course!

So, what I want to know is what will you show me in your area while I am visiting? Do you maybe live near the state capital? Is there a neat beach near you? A tour of a cool factory? Your sweet get-a-way place? Show me why Virginia is for lovers?

What type of food will I be eating?

What will be our mode of transportation while touring? Car, bus, train, taxi?

And I would also like to know what area you are in (north, south, east, west, central). And what I will need to pack, as far as clothing goes.

(okay, so this is fictional, I just thought it would be neat if everyone could let everyone else know what is cool in your area, just in case someone might want to visit)

When I was young, I always said I wanted to be someone...I guess I should have been more specific!

I have lived in Virginia all my life and am living in only the 2nd house I've ever lived in. I live just outside of Richmond in New Kent County. I'm sort of between Richmond and Williamsburg but oreinted more toward Richmond.
When you've lived somewhere all your life, it's hard to imagine what someone else would be interested in because you take it for granted. And of course, I know all the places you shouldn't go because they're to dangerous and Richmond can be dangerous. We do have CaryTown which is a one way street where you park and walk to all the little shops. The shops are unique and different. I think my favorite is Death by Chocolate but you will be overwhelmed. There is also Shockhoe Bottom which also has many different restaurants and shops. Bottoms Up Pizza would be your best pick there. Parking is a problem in both places but if you want to go, you'll manage. The James River has many attractions such as raft trips and such and there are always concerts at many places on the weekends. We have Hollywood Cemetery an Poe's museum and the Haunting tours in those areas. Being older and having lived here forever, I don't go to any of these places buy you might like them, especially if you're young and adventureous.
