Shockoe Slip is a really cool little area in downtown Richmond. Cobblestone streets with restaurants, bars, business, and shops in the heart of downtown Richmond. Its definitely worth a walk around the area. The downside is that although there are a lot of restaurant choices, they are expensive and not very good. Just about all the restaurants are upscale, and the food is sub-par. There are a few good places to eat, but beware- check reviews before you make a choice. If you are into the bar scene, this can be a very fun area. If not, take a walk around the canal, visit the shops, and grab a bite to eat.
