Went by this location and although the old station has been revamped. I saw nothing from the outside beckoning me to park and come inside.

Very nice evening celebrating with fellow Virginia Democrats. It was great to see the speakers and the special guest Corey Booker, US Senator from New Jersey.

A beautiful attraction. If you are in the area stop by and take a short walk around. It has been remolded and it's a place to go to by time while in the area.

There is an Enterprise rental office at 2nd and Main. It's a lot closer and cheaper than renting at the airport, but only open Mon-Fri.
