ANNAPOLIS, Md.– Saturday’s visit was probably the my fifthteenth to Maryland’s capital city. I have been to Annapolis more than any other state capital. The only other state capitals I’ve actually spent time in are Harrisburg (Pennsylvania), Boston (Massachusetts), and Denver (Colorado). I’ve driven around or through Albany (New York), Providence (Rhode Island), Trenton (New Jersey), Richmond (Virginia), Raleigh (North Carolina) and Columbus (Ohio). I’ve never set foot in Richmond despite living in the commonwealth for 93% of my life. I guess I should correct that someday, but I’ve never felt compelled to there.
What makes Richmond worth the trip?
