Mississippi Confederate

What about Richmond---- I lived in Richmond for 3 years and it's a lot of thugs that live out there

Currently, the crime rate is fairly low. I think the schools are great. I love the river and parks in the area. There are also a lot of food options in the city! I can eat in a new restaurant every day of the week and not duplicate any for about 6 months. With that being said, I still have two favorites that I go to at least once a week.

I highly recommend a sandwich called the cheese colombo at Coppola's in Carytown. It's an adult grilled cheese with pepper, onion, and artichoke. Three kinds of cheese are fried directly on the griddle so they get melty and gooey in the middle, but really crispy and almost burnt on the outside. That helps the bun not get too soggy when the marinated veggies are added. It's perfection.

Vienna are you kidding me-- I agree with the other person. I don't think you have visited some of these places. I lived there for a long time. I live in Richmond now. But Vienna is not s****y. And what about the rest of Virginia---

I live in Richmond,va. and with all that goes around this city, I do liv in a fairly nice part just west of the downtown. I also, being a photographer and musician as well, have been able to visit the small towns and backroads which are beautiful places and the people in these towns I have met through travels are very nice...
