Street Art Along the Canal in Richmond

A couple weekends ago, Adam and I took a trip to Charlottesville for a bit of rainy tailgating, and then to Richmond to pick up the second dresser for our bedroom and visit my parents. It happened to be a beautiful Sunday in RVA following the dreary day of football on Sunday, so we got up and headed downtown to get in a few steps.


Maybe I just didn’t take advantage of Richmond when I lived there, or maybe it’s because I haven’t lived there since I was 18, but there is so much to do and I’m just now discovering it! The Canal Walk is a stretch downtown along the canal that’s perfect for a morning power walk or an afternoon stroll.

There are several murals along one stretch of the Canal Walk that made me wish I’d planned a blog shoot! How great are these colors?



I’m especially loving the shapes, colors, and lines of that second mural, though I love how they are all so different yet all stand together. Richmonders — where are some other great street art locations in RVA? I’m dying to check out more next time I’m back home. Any Richmond bloggers out there with favorite spots in the city?


And, just in case any of y’all are planning on heading down to Richmond in the near future, make sure you check out my posts on where to stay in Richmond. You can go quirky (literally) or traditional, there’s no bad option.
