So Much to See, So Much to do

Are you a foodie? An outdoor enthusiast? A shopper? A lover of arts and culture? A historic architecture buff? Yes, “Virginia Is for Lovers,” and the Richmond area embodies everything our commonwealth slogan implies, including agreeable weather.

Downtown Richmond, Virginia’s state capital, is just a short drive away. It features world-class museums, cultural events and nationally recognized dining for every palate. It’s also home to the renowned Richmond Symphony and Richmond Ballet.

For the shopper in you, there is everything from unique boutiques to the upscale West End stores at Short Pump Town Center.

Countless nearby recreation areas are calling, full of scenic walking and biking trails. You can cast a line, canoe or kayak along the beautiful James River.

Day trips are easy—to places like Washington, D.C., Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, Kings Dominion, Virginia Beach and the Shenandoah Mountains.

If you really want to get away, you will have quick access to Richmond International Airport, recently named the Most Efficient Airport in North America.*
