What is your favorite place or thing to do in Richmond?

I love to explore the city - the trails along the James River, every block of the Fan District, a local shop, a neighborhood festival, a shady spot in Byrd Park to read.

It means learning about my community, listening to my community and doing the work needed to ensure it's a place where everyone can thrive.
