+1 on Legend and it's almost time for their famous Chocolate Porter. That almost makes up for summer being over!

How are Legend's prices?

Friend of mine is a waitress there, but I've never been. I work just across the river from there in the bottom, been meaning to check it out for a while.

Has anyone done the turning basin tour? How about the segway tour of the city?

No, but I laugh every time I see some idiot on those Segways, especially when they're wearing helmets or full padding, because you can totally die from tipping over at 5 mph.

It's comprable to what Richbrau in the Slip was (RIP) or maybe Chili's & Ruby Tuesday's. The beer is not cheap but it is miles better than what you would get in a can. You should give it a try (their wings are esp. good, not the same old same old sauce and they are grilled instead of fried).

There are several museums in Richmond, depending on what you're interested in.....Civil War, etc. Here's a great link.......look at all the Civil War Photos. If you would then like to see the actual trenches and gun emplacements, drive down Rte. 5 to Varina and tour the Richmond Battlefield Park. You can travel East on Darbytown Road from Laburnum and visit Dorey Park....nice lake there with a walking track around it, along with picnic facilities.

Dorey Park Lake


If you happen to really be into the Civil War statistics, here's a great link I just ran across.

The Civil War in Virginia

Visit the "City Locks" (Great Ship Lock Park - Dock Street)on the James River-Kanawha Canal (which was designed by George Washington as an inland waterway)(see "Tobacco Row" - the original Tobacco Factorys, now condos, as you drive along Dock Street - don't overlook the "Flood Gate" {18th & Dock})....then drive on down to the "Upper Terminal" and docks to view the City, looking upriver (James River) from the deep water terminal dock (should see some fishermen there). There may be a cruise ship there for touring (was last time I was there). Then you can view the old "Fulton Gas Works" with it's cobble stone entrance street. From there, travel up 25th Street (from Main Street)to "Libby Hill Parkl" and Chimborazo Park on "Church Hill" to overlook the James River and visit the Church where Patrick Henry gave his famous speech. Traveling back downtown on Main Street you'll drive by the "Poe Museum" (Edgar Allen Poe's home)(20th & Main)While in the East End, visit some of the old houses that are being renovated.
For Hikers, here is a link you can peruse....lists many trail systems around the Richmond Area..

I didn't know Legends had wing but I have not been there in a about 6-8 yrs. It definately is nice to sit outside there with the view. I have been drinking more of the Brown Ale here lately, when I have drank Legends.
