Weekending in The RVA

I have said it before and I will say it again, Richmond is one of my absolute favorite cities in the country...and I've been to every major city minus three. It's affordable, it's absolutely gorgeous. There is so much to do. And then there is the food. The food. Did I mention the food. 

I surprised Wiki with a trip on Friday and completely shocked him when his parents walked in. They drove down from Boston to surprise him and then I got him again on Saturday when my parents waltzed in. We drove around showing my in laws all the of the RVA, had a great dinner and settled back in at the resort before a packed to the gills Saturday. 

We had breakfast, hit the Poe museum, wandered through historic neighborhoods, took a boat tour through the canals, took in a movie at the iconic Byrd theater ( built in the 1920's, magnificent is almost underwhelming of a word to describe this place. And you get a live organ show prior to the movie that rises from the floor) 

Then we capped our night off at the grand dame of all hotels, The Jefferson with some cocktails and people watching. We saw no less than seven different brides! 

Sunday started with a big brunch and then we headed to the Fine Arts Museum and were able to take in the Art of the Flower exhibit with paintings from Van Gogh, Manet and Matisse. We ended our trip to the museum with cocktails and snacks at their rooftop restaurant, The Amuse.

Can't wait to go back in the Fall. I never tire of this fabulous and charming city full of rich history and scrumptious eats.

Enjoy the photos from our weekend away!
