While it may not seem like a Southern charmer at first blush (like, say, Charleston), Richmond, Virginia will steal your heart. No longer just the site of “Give me Liberty or Give Me Death,” this magnolia-dotted city values its art just as much as its deep fried catfish and BBQ. Proof? Richmond has converted warehouses into public art space and inked itself as a U.S. tattoo capital. And used Richmond furniture? Well, it’s tailor-made for veranda sitting—or renovated loft living.
