Discover the Richmond Region

Richmond, the capital of Virginia, is one of America's oldest major cities. Richmond's budding food, music, and cultural scene put it on the map as one of the hottest places to live. Richmond was recently featured in both the New York Times and Forbes as one of the coolest U.S. cities to visit.

Richmond combines big-city amenities with Southern charm. History buffs will enjoy visits to St. John's Church where Patrick Henry gave his famous "Give me Liberty or Give me Death" speech. Museums include the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, The American Civil War Museum, the Virginia Museum of History & Culture, the Children's Museum of Richmond and the Virginia Holocaust Museum. Music and dance enthusiasts will enjoy the Richmond Symphony, Richmond Ballet and Virginia Opera.

Two major colleges, Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Richmond, are cultural hubs and host theatre events, music performances and impressive sports teams.    

Richmond's appealing climate and location (2 hours to the beach, the mountains and Washington D.C.) make it an enjoyable and exciting city in which to work and live.
