Photo Tour: Richmond, VA

Photo Tour: Richmond, VA - Style Jaunt by Katarina Kovacevic

On a trip to Virginia in October, I spent a few days in Richmond. Most of the time was reserved for touring the city's weddings venues as part of research for a story, but I did manage to sneak in a few nerdy-fun history stops, The Virginia State Capitol being one of them (where a lot of movies have been shot, including Lincoln...they used it as The White House).

I hopped on a Segway to tour the city's other historical landmarks and of course made sure to try out some of Richmond's best restaurants. My favorite was Comfort, where Chef Travis Milton's Appalachian family recipes take center stage. During a site tour at Maymont, a preserved 1800s mansion with vast lawns and beautiful views, I spotted one of the coolest and most ornate beds (IT'S A SWAN!) I've ever seen.

Fall was in full swing during my visit and I'll never forget the colors that I saw peeping out around the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.
