Lingering in Lakeside

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
1 of 4
Your first stop in Henrico's quaint Lakeside District should be Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. One of the top gardens in the country, Lewis Ginter was recently voted America's #4 Public Garden by USA Today, offering year-round beauty on an historic property with more than 50 acres of spectacular gardens, dining and shopping. A classical domed Conservatory is the only one of its kind in the mid-Atlantic. More than a dozen themed gardens include a Children’s Garden, Rose Garden, Asian Valley and Cherry Tree Walk.

If you are lucky enough to be here on a Wednesday or Saturday, don't miss the Lakeside Farmers' Market. The award-winning market offers year-round fresh fruits and vegetables as well as locally-grown meats, eggs and other organics.

After perusing the market, it's time to take a stroll through some of the unique shops along the Lakeside Avenue Shopping District. The shops have something for everyone with gifts and items you won't find anywhere else!

After a busy day of walking and shopping, it's time for a refresh. There's no better place to stop than Final Gravity Brewing Company where you can enjoy a craft beer or pick up some brewing supplies of your own.
