Why was the Leigh Street Viaduct built? It's so large and gets so little traffic. Did it get more traffic decades ago? It seems like a bridge to nowhere. I’d love to know more about it and the Marshall Street Viaduct it replaced.

Discover Richmond - Communities

Discover Richmond: April 2016

Hungry? Hope so.

For the new Discover Richmond, we got to thinking about the incredible – and tasty – breadth of our burgeoning food scene. So enjoy a feast for the eyes and stomach: We're spotlighting 26 local restaurant "fave" dishes.

And for some wine and wanderlust, we offer tastings and pairings – as in, a glimpse at some admired wineries around the state, plus cool destinations to check out while you're nearby.

We also look back – at Virginia on the cusp of World War 1 and at the height of major presidential campaign – and we hit the trail (by bike, no less – check out our misadventure).

Discover Richmond touches on history, people, food, lifestyles, travel, the arts – the topics you've told us you like. Enjoy the journey!

Discover Richmond: February 2016

As we roll into 2016, Discover Richmond is excited to expand its reach and touch on history, people, food, lifestyles, travel, the arts – the topics you've told us you like.

In this issue, we look beyond our local boundaries and spotlight great adventures within easy grasp of our central location. From cool destinations within a roughly 100-mile radius of the area, to great camping, to relaxing B&Bs and restaurant picks, we give you some ideas as you think about springtime travel.

We also look back at fascinating pieces of our political and social history, and for modern flavor, we check in with local chefs, touch base with a hotel insider and music impresario – and even delve into the science of spit.

Enjoy the journey!
