You could walk the narrow streets of The Fan all day long and see something unique in each building you pass. It never ceases to amaze me what was built in early 20th century Richmond. And there are plenty of small parks, shops and restaurants throughout.

Always a good time had by all. Don't drink and drive. Ride the To the Bottom and Back bus. Remember to tip your servers and bartenders. Call a cab if you even question yourself if you are unsure to drive. Go see the polar bear on Main St

This is a beautiful area of Richmond to wander through; the challenge however is to find a place to park. There are great houses, some neat shops (not as much as Carrytown) and a vibrant atmosphere. The downside is the lack of parking and the lack of a good map focused on the items not to be missed. The City of Richmond needs to do more to promote this.
