USA Today.com Features James River-Kanawha Canal in ‘Great Places to Stream Through Cities’
USA Today.com asked Kit Cramer, president of the International Downtown Association, a non-profit organization that promotes creative development, for her list of great places to take a boat ride. In their “10 Great Places to Stream Through Cities” article, Richmond’s Kanawha Canal rates as a must-see destination.
‘”Passengers on the River District Canal Cruises tour through Richmond’s past and present,’ Cramer says. Towering stone abutments from a railroad bridge destroyed in the Civil War are phantom reminders of the city’s role in history.”
Highlighting Downtown’s unique blend of past and present, the article also points to the “Sleek skyscrapers representing major corporate headquarters symbolize its importance today.”
