I arrived to Richmond by the car from Washington D.C. I took I-95 south from Arlington to Richmond when I first got here. The traffic was moderate with no traffic jams on that Wednesday afternoon so it took me less than 2 hours, of course I got there well before rush hour.
I was looking for southern country music while driving. I found WBBC (93.5 FM) and WKHK (95.3 FM) radio stations.
Richmond is located in east-central Virginia about 90 miles (145 km) west of the Atlantic Coast (as the crow flies) and 110 miles (180 km) south of the U.S. capital - Washington.
Two interstate freeways meet in Richmond:
1. I-95 which goes from Maine (bordering New Brunswick province in Canada) along the Atlantic Coast down to Miami, Florida (almost 1,900 miles; 3,000 km).
2. I-64 which goes from Virginian Atlantic Coast (Virginia Beach) westwards to St. Louis in Missouri.

If you are not Republican do not park your car by the sign on my picture :-))). OK, this sign was put on a private property, more seriously parking a car maybe a problem in downtown. In weekdays till, as I remember 5.00 pm, you must pay for parking in parking meters (stricly enforced). However, on weekends you don't pay anything.
First I parked in the MCVH Visitor Patient Parking deck at the end of Clay Street. It should be free for folks who visit the Museum of the Confederacy but I was forced to pay $4.00 (details in my Warning & Danger tip).
Later I was looking for a parking slot along eastern part of the Monument Avenue and... I found it quite easy on late afternoon in a business day.

Public Transportation in Richmond bites the big one. The ONLY way to get around is by car. We tried the bus once and it dropped us off in front of a construction site right in a neighborhood full of abandoned buildings. We thought we were going to the mall??
