Discover Richmond: February 2018
Writer Bill Lohmann and photographer Bob Brown have previously hit the back roads (and pie shops) of Virginia, but for a new adventure, they decided to stay in the capital city. In revisiting some well-known spots in Richmond, they find some unexpected or rarely seen treats – and take you behind the scenes in the RTD’s new Discover Richmond magazine.
Elsewhere, we explore an unheralded resource – a campus in Henrico County that has been changing lives for decades. You’ll learn how the Virginia Rehabilitation Center for the Blind and Vision Impaired teaches students to navigate life.
Wonder about the status of our symbols? We check in on a dozen of Virginia’s official emblems. You’re probably familiar with the state bird (cardinal) – but less so with the state bat or beverage.
We’ve also got food, drink and plenty of history – from a notable Frenchman who tunneled his way into Virginia history to a Revolutionary War bullet that has quite a story to tell. The RTD’s Discover Richmond – enjoy the journey!
