I live in the city but Richmond is unique as I am surrounded by parks, forest, hiking trails, biking trails and a river in which you can Kayak or swim when temperatures are good for it. All in walking distance.There is the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts with great exhibitions and art programs. Richmond is now considered a "foodie" city. You can eat any kind of ethnic food you can possibly think of. We have an outdoor amphitheater, an opera house and lots more. There are regular art gallery events. The beach is 2 hours east and the mountains 2 hours west. Washington, D.C. is 2 hours north. The Flixbus goes up and down the east coast.
