Stunning position and feeling as free as a bird. Still that smell of Southern hospitality and charm though

A city gem~ rock hopping and sunny are big to do! Crossing the city bridges, the river offers some beautiful views.

“Photographer's delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

There are many walkways along the James River that, in some areas, offer views of the downtown and the opportunity to observe birds catching fish. Other areas provide biking trails in addition to hiking. Bring your camera and binoculars,... and a big smile to greet the many friendly people there!

“Water view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

Pony Pasture gets regular visit. Sit and relax, walk the road, watch nature unfold, or see kayakers show off their skills. Maybe lay on the "beach."
