The lush green expanse of Capitol Square is a favorite spot for locals to bring a picnic lunch. Rose bushes cluster along the rails of bubbling, antique fountains—one has a diving board for squirrels! Statues of local historical figures like Edgar Allen Poe dot the lawn. A brick sidewalk leads to an impressive monument to Virginia's presidents and statesmen. Capitol Square is a relaxing retreat from the bustle of the business district on the surrounding streets.
