Three things we are so thankful for in Richmond

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and we can almost taste turkey in the air, roasted to a perfect, golden crisp with all the fixings on the side. Of course, this food heavy holiday is about more than getting a slice of grandma’s famous pie and trying to fight off a nap before the big game ends. It is a time to take into account all the blessings we have in our life and to express our gratitude. For us at PMI Richmond, we thought we would take some time to highlight a few of our very favorite things about Richmond, VAza that make us so thankful to call this city our home.

Your outside options seem endless

Whether you are a daredevil seeking a wild adventure, a bird watcher looking for a relaxing walk through a park or an audiophile seeking the best show in town, Richmond has many outdoor spaces for your desired activity. Take a wild ride down the James River right through the heart of downtown Richmond. Go for a bike ride or stroll on Belle Isle. Catch a band in a socially distanced manner under the stars at one of Brown Island’s many outdoor concerts and events, that is, once they are up and running again. It doesn't matter if you are looking for hiking, fishing, biking or climbing, Richmond has so many outdoor spaces perfect for recreation that we all have more choices than we can make the time to visit.

Incredible restaurants and breweries

Richmond boasts an unbelievably diverse line up when it comes to restaurant options. French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, New American and, of course, some good old southern cooking are just a sampling of the variety we have to choose from in our city. The offerings are truly on an international scale. But you can’t stop there when speaking on Richmond’s glorious food and beverage scene. Did you know the Richmond area has approximately thirty breweries? That’s a lot of beer we need to taste! There is no need to worry though, you can simply hop on the Richmond Beer Trail and begin checking them off your list.

Close proximity to so many places and landscapes

Richmond itself has a lot to offer as a city, but sometimes it feels good to get out of town for a bit and go on a miniature vacation. For us Richmonders, this is pretty easy to do, and we have a lot of different options to escape to. If you are looking for a bigger city to explore, Washington, DC is just over two hours north of Richmond. If you are looking to bask in the sunshine at the beach, Virginia Beach is just shy of two hours to the east. If you are looking to leave the hustle and bustle behind, within an hour and a half or two, depending on your desired entry point, you can be in Shenandoah National Park, winding through the beautiful Appalachian mountains along the mountainous, two lane Skyline Drive. Where else can you access so many great escapes so close to home?!
