Richmond's Carytown #9 Best Neighborhood for Shopping

Happy Holidays Everyone! The year is starting off on a high note of great publicity for nearby Carytown. As noted in this week's Richmond Style Magazine, the January issue of Southern Living notes that their reader's poll has chosen our own Carytown in Richmond, Virginia as #9 on their list of the ten Best Neighborhoods For Shopping! Carytown is even ranked ahead of Georgetown, which is #10. We are very grateful for the support of Carytown merchants, and we send guests to Carytown for a unique shopping experience whenever we can. We have recently joined with the other Richmond B&B's (The Grace Manor Inn, The Museum District Bed and Breakfast, and The William Miller House) to offer our guests a special Carytown shopping package. (Check out our joint website at http://www.historicrichmondinns.com/.) With a card from one of our establishments during their stay with us, our guests can get 10% off their purchases from participating merchants. With the successful Carytown New Year's Eve event ahead, we wish Carytown merchants all the best for a successful 2009. By the way, we also highly recommend the new book, "Celebrating the Byrd Theatre," available at Murphies and other locations in Carytown for $29.95. We bought one for Maury Place and a couple for Christmas presents. This glossy book is full of wonderful stories and photos of Carytown and the Byrd Theatre. Proceeds from book sales benefit this Carytown jewel--Richmond's Landmark Movie Palace!
