Richmond, the capital of Virginia, is an economically progressive city that embraces its past as well as its future. Established as the state capital in 1779, the city boasts a rich history, which can still be seen today in the architecture, the statues on Monument Avenue and even in the cobblestone streets found around the city.
A strong cultural community enhances the distinct diversity that flows throughout the city. Museums, mom-and-pop shops and specialized boutiques are only some of the fun places to browse. There are always things to do.
Richmond offers the amenities of a larger city while maintaining a small-town feel. Its ideal location allows for day or weekend trips to the beach, the mountains or larger cities like Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital.
