Main Street Station
1500 E Main St, Richmond, VA 23219
The night view of the Main Street Station in Richmond, VA., is quite the experience. Right under i-95 you can pull in and park your car. There are places to sit as well, and you will often see people waiting for their train to arrive -- or just enjoying the view and sounds of the cars passing by. It is my favorite place to go when I'm having a restless night and just need to get out and wander.
This fairytale view, along with the surrounding area of Shockoe Bottom, is a must visit when in Richmond! I remember driving into RVA for the first time in December – while experiencing the view from i-95, and it practically made my heart skip a beat. Whenever I visit the Main Street Station today, I immediately imagine myself flying off to Neverland. Then I am quickly reminded that I am already living my own version of a fairytale -- right here, in Richmond, VA.
