Though the recently opened Holiday Inn Richmond accommodates all kinds of travelers, one local attraction in particular suits only the most intrepid sweet teeth. Along the Chocolate Trail, chocolate lovers flash their free passports—available at the Old National Road Welcome Center, just minutes from the hotel—to a number of local chocolatiers and receive free samples of homemade fudge, hand-dipped chocolate creams, and locally made ice cream. Of course, visitors can also ignore the dentists whispering in the bushes and visit Richmond's myriad other landmarks, from the Historic Depot District's art galleries to the New Boswell Brewing Co.'s fresh pints of ale.
At the Holiday Inn itself, guests kick back in a sleek lounge with TVs at each table or stay active in an indoor pool and fitness center with an elliptical, a recumbent bike, and free weights. Free high-speed wireless Internet flows through the air, barely ruffling the pillows atop the triple-sheeted king beds within the rooms and suites.
Jackie and Alan Carberry started Warm Glow Candle Company in their basement back in 1994, experimenting for months with different ingredients and techniques before finally perfecting a fragrant, clean-burning, long-lasting candle with a signature lumpy surface. Today, the Carberrys and their staff use that same recipe as they make more than 15,000 candles by hand each day in their 80,000-square-foot studio, accompanied by pet cats, dogs, and a tropical bird who sometimes answers the phone. Patrons can visit the space to peruse candles in more than 75 scents, including brandied pear and sun-kissed sage, or to procure other highly fragrant items from their line to infuse your home.

Legend Hall Arabians owner Jason Chiles and his wife, Michelle, balance each other out both at home and on the range. A trainer and showing champion of arabian and half-arabian horses for 16 years, Jason thrives on his experience, whereas Michelle—a novice rider—keeps the farm’s atmosphere easygoing, fun, and inviting to riders of all levels. At the Chiles’ scenic 50-acre farm, arabian horses canter around the grounds as students learn western, hunt, saddle-seat, and driving disciplines from Jason in 60-minute lessons held near the 29-stall training barn, where dressage horses get ready for shows by chewing on bales of dental floss.
