Do you know of anyone in Richmond Virginia who knew about Tantilla Gardens or Tiny Town? It was torn down but during the 1930-40's the "South's most beautiful ballroom had famous orchestras like Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, etc.

Hi Margie,

Tantilla Gardens sounds great! As a current swing dancer living in Richmond I certainly wish it was still around! The local PBS station had a local series called "Remembering Richmond" or something like that. It was a very interesting show in which they interviewed longtime residents of Richmond and their recollections of life in town in the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, etc. Someone who had a hand in the show's production may be able to help you.

Hi, Missy. I am 52 years old and I recall seeing Tantilla from the car as my parents drove by, probably around 1960-1961. We were definitely not well-off financially, but every now and then my folks would get a babysitter and go to Tantilla for an evening out with friends. I know they really enjoyed themselves there because they did go repeatedly, and I believe it was pretty much all they did for entertainment at the time. It must've been some place!

Travel Tips for Richmond

FREE WiFi at the Airport

by Hopkid

If you’re traveling with your wireless-capable laptop, get to the airport early to avoid potential long lines at check-in and/or security. Then settle into a spot near an AC outlet and connect to RIC’s free Wifi signal. That’s right, I said FREE! Most airports charge for wireless connection, that is if it’s even offered. It’s such a convenience to be able to do some work or at least check email or surf while waiting for your flight. It will make the time until boarding “fly” by!

Richmond Flood Wall

by b1bob

The Richmond Flood Wall serves as a protective concrete wall against a sizeable flood. The flood wall is 15-25 feet (4.6-7.6 m.) tall. The Flood Wall has two overlooks on the Southside and several walking paths along its perimeter for tours. It has been credited for the revitalisation of Shockoe Bottom, once prone to substantial damage from severe floods from the James River. The second picture shows the watermarks from key historical floods. From bottom to top: Camille (1969), Juan (1985), Agnes (1972), and the historic 1771 flood which must have been our very own Hurricane Katrina.

City leaders saw fit at its inception to decorate the barren concrete facade with murals on key events in Richmond history. Yet the one honouring Confederate General Robert E. Lee stirred some local controversy. Some hooligans burned a version of the mural with the general dressed in his uniform. As a compromise (to the hooligans and a tiny cadre of people who look for something to offend them) they redid the Robert E. Lee mural, but with him dressed in civilian clothes.

The flood wall has been tested one time by a major flood. Ironically, it was from a mild (in terms of wind speed) tropical storm (Gaston) in August, 2004. 14 inches (35 cm.) of rain fell in the space of a few hours. The wall did its job protecting the Shockoe Bottom from water from the James River, but poor drainage on the other side of the wall led to the destructive floods. At one point during the storm, there was more water on the north side of the flood wall than there was in the James River. As of April, 2005, some businesses flooded out moved to higher ground, and some who rebuilt in the same place were still in that process.

The flood wall serves its purpose, despite the fluke of Gaston, but my true favourite thing about this is the spirit of most Shockoe Bottom businesses to reopen in place after such a disaster.

The capital, but not the largest city

by matcrazy1

Richmond is the capital city of Virginia. So, I expected to see busy and crowded downtown with traffic jams, a shortage of parking slots, expensive parking, numerous skyscrapers in large business district etc.

Haha, I was wrong. Luckily downtown Richmond looked quite different. I saw streets which were nearly empty, green space, lots of free parking slots at the end of the working day. Look at my picture taken at West Franklin Street close to Jefferson Hotel at the edge of the downtown area to see what I mean. Then I got to know that Richmond is not that large city with population of only about 200,000. Did you know Richmond is surpassed in population by the cities of Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and now even Chesapeake?

Well, during my Southern Odyssey I discovered again and again that the state capital cities were often not the largest cities in each state. What a difference with most European countries where the capital cities are almost always the largest cities.

How could that be in the USA? Here are a few random thoughts:

1. Maybe the state capitals didn't grow since they were founded so fast (as in Europe and as other cities in a state) because they were simply too expensive for many companies and individuals.

2. Maybe many companies in Europe preferred and still prefer to be closer to government leadership in the capital city. Why is that? One major reason is that European economic systems are still obviously more centralized.

3. European capitals are older and had more time to grow and grow. Thus, they didn't divide into as many individual cities.

Shipping Stuff Back

by Sagespot

On my last trip to Richmond, I ended up purchasing a ton of stuff from the EA Poe Museum that I couldnt fit into my luggage. I was in luck, as the local UPS office was super kind and worked with me to ship stuff.

They even shipped back two thirty lb. gargoyle statues!!

Plantation Row
