I’m here in Richmond, VA for about a month now and I have not had the opportunity to explore the city yet. Since I am flying out of the US soon, a friend decided to tour us around even for half a day.
We went to Maymont Park. We explored the grounds for two hours. The park boasts of different attractions such as the Nature Center, Aviary, grey Fox, Bobcat, Elk and Sika Deer, Raptor Valley, Children’s Farm, Eagle, Black Bear, Japanese Garden, Grotto, Waterfall, Italian Garden, Mausoleum, Garden Hall, Carriage House, Herb Garden, Stone Barn and the Maymont Mansion.
The place is humungous and soo green. There were lots of trees and greeneries. I love the place so much. I told my mom and friend that we had our share of exercise for the day with all the walking that we’ve done.
After that we went to Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. We only had 30 minutes to tour the place because it will close by 5PM. But I’m glad that we were able to see all the artifacts there.
We then passed by Cary Street, also known as Cary town for all the shops and stores along this long road. And then we went to Juleps, a restaurant which specializes on New Southern cuisine. I had parmesan crusted salmon with risotto. Yummy!
It was good that the sun came out today; it has been raining for the days. It was a perfect day!
