This summer I didn’t get to take any long trips to exotic places.
I admit that there were moments of pure envy whenever I read my friend Charlotte Marie’s blog as she zipped to Thailand and Singapore using Botswana as her home base.
World travel just wasn’t in my plans (or budget) this summer. However, I discovered that you can learn a lot by just hanging out in your own big backyard.
While on assignment for the Henrico Citizen’s Discover Henrico project, I was able to visit and photograph dozens of places that I hadn’t explored before or that I had taken the time to enjoy.
Who knew that you can find a refreshing pond and fountain at The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen?
And did you know that Highland Springs has the Henrico Theatre, a lovely, renovated theater where you can see live shows and movies?
I found places that I know I’ll return to visit or take family and friends to visit when they come to Henrico County.
You can explore all the places that I discovered on an interactive map complete with photographs, information and videos at discoverhenrico.com. Click on the map tab.
Enjoy and bon voyage, y’all!
