Looking from Rocketts Landing along the James River to the skyline of Richmond.
Another day, another poll ... but Richmond has really turned itself around since its decline in the 1970s and '80s as it continues to attract young people with its James River urban recreational sites as well as housing, business, restaurants, and entertainment. It deserves to be a top city pick.
The Boathouse Restaurant at Rockett's Landing has indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the James River.
