Best Town Ever

Richmond Named Best Town Ever!

Outside, America's leading active-lifestyle brand, selected Richmond, VA as the winner in its search to determine the best river town in America. As the Best Town Ever, Richmond was honored with a special mosaic cover on Outside's 35th anniversary issue. The mosaic cover is featured in a special interactive display on Outside Online that allows visitors to view the individual photographs that were used to construct the image of downtown Richmond.

Outside identified the top 10 river towns in the U.S. based on quality-of-living criteria, active recreational engagement with nearby waterways-kayaking, fishing, boating, walking and bike paths, and riverfront parks-and a positive environmental stewardship. Outside then called on the public to help select the winning town through its Best Town Ever Facebook app.

Come visit the Richmond Region and see why Outside says;

"Richmond is the real deal - a true haven for adventurous types."
