The 360° views of the city and surround counties. Accessible by elevator in the city hall building. Only turn off was the cigarette smoke - this is where all of the smoking employees congregate.
Visiting here one can see the whole of Richmond and surrounding areas. Downtown Richmond is very compact and easily accessed, but looking over the whole of the city it is amazing how far the city stretches in all directions.

The observation area is very simple. However, if you have a tourist map of downtown Richmond, you can spot several landmarks. It's good for a quick visit. The staff in the lobby was cheerful and helpful.

It's open air so be prepared on cold days. You can walk around the entire building check out the entire city and plan your day.

This is a great place to take out-of-town guests to get a "bird's eye" view of Richmond. My grandkids also love for me to point out interesting things to them when we go there. It is a peaceful and quiet place to sit and enjoy the view.
