Welcome To the Richmond Region
There’s no one-size-fits all here. Seven destinations, each with their 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 that you won’t find anywhere else.
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 their 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 with your dog.
We’re a place that celebrates diversity. Through community-driven initiatives that are woven into the fabric of our region, visitors see first-hand that diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility are at the heart of everything that we do.
Don’t know where to start? Let’s get creative.
As always, your safety is our first priority. To find out more, check out our Visit Richmond Safely page.
