The winter holiday season is here, and for many folks that means travel. The flip side? That means visitors for plenty of people, too.
If you have family or friends to entertain this holiday season, look no further than this guide to River City fun. Your guests will be asking themselves why they haven’t just moved here already.
You can find a delicious local beverage for any time of day. Fueling up for a day of exploration is easy in a town overflowing with coffee shops. And, if later in the day you find yourself craving a local brew, Richmond’s got you there, too.
Richmond wasn’t named a world culinary destination for nothing. Start your day with local brunch, or grab a slice on the go from one of the city’s numerous pizzerias. Craving a burger? Richmond’s got the best in the country. Or, make a pit stop for hot dogs, mac and cheese, or tacos. If a member of your group is vegetarian or vegan, fear not — there’s no shortage of options in town for a meatless foodie.
Looking for kid-friendly things to do around town? Educational destinations like the Children’s Museum, the Science Museum of Virginia, and the VMFA can be fun for all ages. If the great outdoors is more your style, try one of the Richmond area’s expansive parks.
Hit the town
It’s not hard to show your guests everything Richmond has to offer without breaking the bank. Spend the day wandering the city’s endless thrift stores, then head out and see a show — there’s no need to spend a fortune on tickets to see a great concert. Or, if you’re feeling brainy, take your pick of local trivia spots.
