Richmond was named in the top 15 most charming state capitals by RentLingo.com, an apartment hunting website.
Richmond was named number 12 out of 49 state capitols, including D.C. The report didn’t include Hawaii or Alaska’s capitals.
The ranking was determined by the website’s charm rating, which included the affordability of local businesses, crime statistics, ratings of nearby businesses, numbers of locally owned stores vs. corporate chains, and how active the residence is, meaning how close gyms, parks, and recreational activities are.
Boston, Annapolis, Providence and Washington topped the chart, while Hartford, Augusta, Carson City and Trenton were at the bottom.
