My ideal type of shopping, especially at the holidays, is to wander from one unique store to the next instead of fighting the crowds at the mall. So I was really pleased to spend a couple of hours exploring Richmond’s downtown historic Depot District during my recent girl’s getaway there.
Like many downtown areas, this part of town used to be full of blight. But now, you’ll find many revitalized old buildings, thriving restaurants, and really interesting shops throughout the Depot District. New spots are opening all the time. There’s a great map available here.
My favorite part was exploring and not really knowing what was around each corner, so I hope you’ll check it out and make your own discoveries. But here are a few of my favorite spots:
I hope to get back for another visit soon. I never made it to Veach’s Toy Store or the Model T Museum. Plus, I hear the New Boswell Brewery just opened up. So much more fun than just another trip to the mall.
Thanks to Visit Richmond for hosting me during my trip this fall.
