Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig: Richmond VA

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig is proud to have one of its many office locations right here in Virginia’s capital, Richmond. The city boasts a thriving outdoor scene due to its location on the James River and a never-ending number of trails, both in the city and a short drive away, such as the ones on Belle Isle and in nearby Pocahontas State Park. Richmond’s outdoor scene is complimented by a new and growing craft brew market with over two dozen breweries located in the city, several of which have gained large followings within and outside of Virginia. Furthermore, the city has had a vast amount of new construction, repurposing the cities old tobacco factories into useable apartments and businesses. These restorations, along with a vibrant night life, have redefined the centuries old city as a destination which young professionals have flocked to over the last decade. Richmond is a bustling cultural center for the state as well. The city is home to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Science Museum of Virginia and the Edgar Allen Poe Museum—who spent much of his young adult life in the city and returned to live on and off during his adulthood.
