What Bert Has To Say About Richmond Metro Area

The former capital of the Confederacy, Richmond is an attractively-sized, livable capital city with a strong sense of history. The downtown area mixes unremarkable modern buildings with some historic features. On the whole, the area has a considerable base of historic sites, museums and neighborhoods. Outlying suburbs have sprawled concentrically, especially to the west towards Tuckahoe and south towards Petersburg.
