We’ll leave it to our partners at Richmond Region Tourism to give you all the great things to do and cool things to see in our region.


There’s no one-size-fits-all here. Seven destinations, each with its own personality and flavor, make up the eclectic Richmond Region. From urban bustle to small-town charm, from river life to nightlife, a visit here is as diverse as the people you’ll meet along the way.

The Town of Ashland, Chesterfield County, Colonial Heights, Hanover County, Henrico County, New Kent County and the City of Richmond warmly welcome you for an Only in Richmond experience.

Right here in the Richmond Region, an eclectic culture has popped up through the cobblestones. Murals cover the walls of local restaurants and shops. Major art museums draw national attention. Food is an art here, too. In fact, National Geographic put us on its list of the world’s – yep, the world’s – “top 10 places to travel for food.”

Running through it all: the James River. You can whitewater raft through downtown on its class III and IV rapids. Bike the Virginia Capital Trail – it runs right alongside the James. Or, just hang out on the river rocks.

We’re a place that celebrates diversity. Through community-driven initiatives that are woven into the fabric of our region, visitors see firsthand that diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility are at the heart of everything we do.
