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.

In Big Bounce’s 7,500-square-foot fun center, kids scatter across the cushy, rainbow-colored patchwork floor and sprint between inflatable obstacle courses and tropical-themed bounce houses. They filter through the doorway in droves for open-bounce play or private parties and glide down the enormous air-filled slide or shoot baskets in the sports inflatable. In the adjoining diner, which offers views into the play area, families slip into booths to dine on pizza, jumbo hot dogs, and 16 flavors of hand-dipped ice cream. In between bounces and nibbles, kids can shoot hoops and play crane games to learn the painful truth about natural selection.
