About Me
My name is Veronica, and I am a high school English teacher. I love living in Richmond, Virginia because it has everything you want as a young professional, but it's wildly inexpensive for a city and can be quaint—it's a beautiful city to live in. There are clubs, low-key more/less
You have to go to
The Museum District includes the Virginia Museum of Fine Art (VMFA) and Carytown within 3 blocks. The VMFA always has amazing exhibits (for $15 to see everything), and Carytown has tons of shops and delicious places to eat.
Here's one fun activity you can do
Check out Project Yoga Richmond (PYR) for community yoga classes every day of the week.
Don't forget to check out one of my favorite places
Lamplighter Coffee Roasters is a perfect coffee shop with great sandwiches. As a young professional, I like to find time to sit by myself and read a good book for a few hours on Saturdays. This is my go-to-place, and it has really helped me become comfortable being alone and enjoying time to myself.
Enjoy a meal at my favorite restaurant
For a fancy, more expensive meal, I'd recommend The Boathouse in Shockoe Bottom. For a good middle-of-the-road meal, I love The Hill Cafe in Church Hill. For a hole-in-the-wall gem, Boka Tako in the Fan.
Here's a doable bucket list for you to do in one day
1. Enjoy a PYR community yoga class
2. Walk and explore Bell Isle
3. Get a chai latte at Sugar and Twine to go, and then explore Carytown to see all the shops
4. Check out the exhibits at the VMFA (free, or $15 for the changing exhibits)
5. Go to Scott's Addition neighborhood for all of Richmond's breweries
My extra insider tip for you is
Hardywood and Ardent are great breweries to in Scott's Addition.
