Community Information:

Wander through Richmond and discover the magic of a city known as ‘The River City.’ If you hear Virginia as a twangy banjo riff, then think of Richmond as a grooving bassline. Planted between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the state’s coastline, it appears in tune with its reputation as a polished, modern city with deep ties to American history. But inside its preserved buildings, along the James River, and within its charming neighborhoods, you’ll find the offbeat side of Richmond. Attracting new—and increasingly young—residents, Virginia’s capital now resonates with innovative entrepreneurs, hospitality heavyweights, and culture creators.
