What's Booming: Tours! And Concerts! And Museums!
The self-guided kind, the virtual kind, and the opening-soon kind
Fancy a tour, Richmond?

Turn your attention to a non-controversial historical Richmond figure for a bit with the Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site Virtual House Tour. Take a 3-dimensional exploration through her legendary Jackson Ward home – hey, it’s guided, too!
Church Hill Food Tours are BACK, baby. Bring an empty belly and a full water bottle for hours of local history, thriving small businesses, and exquisite bites. Dress appropriately: all food tours currently take place outdoors. Opening back up June 27.
Fancy a concert, Richmond?
Sure you may think that Wintergreen only exists during ski season – but the summertime Wintergreen Music concert offerings are a fair rivalry to the slopes. Check out these musicians – safely virtual – from strings to romantic to music best paired with wine.
