Good job, dedicated Richmond citizen. If you’re getting this, it means you’re already one of the most informed + connected residents in the River City (or at least you’re about to be).

We are RICtoday — your new go-to for navigating all things Richmond. Whether you’re walking the dog, still in bed, sitting in the carpool line, or sipping your morning coffee, your life as a smart, engaged Richmonder just got a little bit easier.

Here’s what you can expect. ⬇️

We’ll share what you need to know in Richmond + in the metro area each day — from ranking the best dishes at a new restaurant to breaking down public transit development — so you can wake up, read one (free) email, learn something new, and move forward with your day. We call that a win.

Because you’re an early subscriber ⬇️

We’re giving you a sneak peek into what we’re working on. Here’s what you’ll find in our upcoming newsletters: 

  • July PlanAhead calendar. Surprise! We’ve already published it. Find it here. Each month you can utilize our curated events calendar to find the best ways to fill all of your days around town — from shows to seminars. 🗓️ 
  • Interested in city development? We’ll give you all the details + let you know how to have your voice heard on the Shockoe Small Area Plan.  
  • We’ve got the scoop on must-have ice cream in Richmond. Let us know your favorite shops and we’ll give them a shoutout. 🍦
  • Believe it or not, school is almost back in session, and we’ll have a writeup for all your back-to-school needs — plus guides for everything to explore in the 804. 

Who are we? ⬇️

RICtoday is the 9th city that 6AM City (our parent company) is helping to make smarter + more informed. We also exist in Asheville (AVLtoday), Raleigh (RALtoday), Charleston (CHStoday) + more. We’re written for locals by locals (👋 Katie + Robin here) who you will get to know in the coming weeks.
