An economically progressive city and Virginia's capital, Richmond offers a wealth of amenities not easily found among other East Coast municipalities.

Richmond's complete livability can be measured in numerous ways: beautiful,  neighborhoods with striking architecture, a vast cultural and educational heritage befitting its more than 200,000 citizens and noted historic prestige tracing back to the early English settlers

Richmond's diversified employment base extends from chemical, food and tobacco manufacturing to biotechnology, semiconductors and high-tech fibers. The city consistently ranks among "Best Places to Live and Work in America".

With less than a two hour drive to the ocean, mountains or Washington, D.C., it offers an ideal location for visitors or permanent residents. But you can stay within the city limits and find trendy boutiques and restaurants, numerous sports and entertainment attractions, outdoor pursuits among one of the nation's largest river park systems, and a treasure trove of historic landmarks that provide fun times galore.

For the five million who visit each year, Richmond is increasingly recognized for many distinguished yet unheralded qualities long enjoyed by those who already live here.
