Virginia days (15): Carytown

My BFF’s husband, Mr. M drove me to downtown Richmond. He is a wonderful guide! Our first destination was Carytown. We walked along W Cary Street. There are attractive businesses on the street, including a formal dress shop and a vintage clothing shop. We dropped by some specialty shops. We found a funny doll in a gift shop. We also found our favorite chocolates from Europe in a chocolate shop, which was full of mouth-watering smells. We stopped by a fair trade shop, too. It was fun to stroll, looking at the colorful, charming facades, humorous posters on the shop windows, and cute graffities on the sidewalk.

We passed by the Byrd Theatre, which is Richmond’s oldest movie theater built in 1928. Carytown is a fabulous place to get to know old and contemporary American cultures.
