SHOCKOE SLIP AND SHOCKOE BOTTOM
The Richmond Region’s hip historic district
Lined with cobblestones, Shockoe Slip and Shockoe Bottom are major business and entertainment districts. The Bottom’s breathtaking Main Street Station is an active Amtrak station and a great starting point for Richmond Region vacation. Also in the Bottom: the historic 17th Street Farmers Market, the Poe Museum (featuring Unhappy Hour), the Virginia Holocaust Museum, lots of restaurants and clubs, and a bike and e-bike rental store (since it’s at the entry point to the Capital Trail.) Just up the hill, Shockoe Slip is filled with one-of-a-kind restaurants, including a visitor fave, The Tobacco Company. Check out the Slip’s cool hotels and shops – and be sure to snap some pics of the Canal Walk and its awesome outdoor murals.
