Below we will showcase a few of these unique spots in Richmond that we love dearly. Feel free to share some of your favorite local spots in the comments!
Blanchard’s Coffee and Roasting Company
This spot is one of our favorite coffee shops as it has a warm and inviting atmosphere. Not only does Blanchard’s make amazing lattes but they also sell their beans! Additionally, they have cute merchandise for sale such as t shirts and coffee mugs. Next time you are passing through Richmond don’t forget to check out this coffee shop.
This is one of our favorite family activities in the city. On a nice day Maymont Park is a great place to take young children. There are beautiful plants and a variety of exotic animals including crocodiles, owls, seahorse, snakes, etc. Make sure to visit this park for an unforgettable experience.
Richmond Flying Squirrels
Who doesn’t like some good baseball on a summer night? The Richmond Squirrels are a minor league baseball team, located in Richmond. Not only are the games exciting, but the stadium is known for great hotdogs. The best part is the tickets are very reasonably priced.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget about the significance of our history and its impact on current society. In an effort to educate yourself and family regarding historical events and important figures be sure to visit the Richmond monuments. The monuments are not the only sights to see as the area is surrounded by gorgeous architecture and forestry.
James River and State Park System
If you are interested in outdoor activities such as kayaking, hiking, or fishing this is the place for you. The park is also a nice place to camp when the weather is nice as it is located along the blue ridge mountains. If you don’t have proper equipment for outdoor activities, no worries, such can be rented on sight.
