Playing in the
Richmond is home to several professional sports organizations, including NASCAR and AA baseball. But, travel the region on one of our many beautiful days, and you’ll see proof that many Richmonders would rather play than watch.
Truly, our residents love to get out and play.
And opportunities abound in every corner of our region.
But, play in Richmond extends far beyond physical activity. Thanks in part to Virginia Commonwealth University’s top-ranked art and advertising schools, creative culture pervades the region. We are home to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, galleries and monthly art walks in several city neighborhoods.
Welcome to Richmond
Find what you love. Love what you find.
On any night of the week, you can find live music at numerous local venues, from music clubs and restaurants to revived historic performance halls, including The National, The Landmark Theatre and Richmond CenterStage, which regularly draw national acts. And if ballet or theater is more your taste, the Richmond Ballet and our many local acting troupes, such as Richmond Shakespeare, are always ready to bring the stage to life.
For the times when you just need to go on a weekend trip, Richmond is perfectly situated for an easy get away. No matter if you seek the mountains, ocean or Washington, D.C., each destination is only 100 miles away. So, the adventure you need is easily within reach.
