I was on a mother-daughter weekend. Our hotel recommended for us to visit the Shockoe Bottom area for an evening of good food and fun and I was glad we went there. It was great to walk around and check out the sites & people watch. We stopped at a few places for drinks and then ate at Bottoms Up Pizza which was awesome. We had a very nice evening and would go back next time I'm in Richmond.

Streets are narrow traffic heavy. The old factories with their washed out bill boards make a great urban look. Restaurants and different shops make you want to pull over and walk a few blocks.

Enjoyed walking around--limited interest, but cool for what it is: an area being gentrified and trying to build on its history.

Cobblestone streets, old industrial building, tobacco industry structure and warehouses no longer in use. A great architectural rehabilitation already happened but there is still room for more improvement. Great potential!

We stayed in the Residence Inn in Shock Slip and so many things were in walking distance including Tredegar Iron Works, Hollywood Cemetery, the VA capital building, the canal boat ride, and Belle Isle. We loved it! The cobble stone streets are amazing all on their own.
