NASCAR: The Richmond International Raceway hosts the NASCAR Spring Cup Series and Nationwide Series. If you love racing, you’ll love moving to Richmond!

Weather: Richmond has great weather, with hot summers and mild winters. The mountains act like a barrier to the extreme cold. Snowfall is about 12 inches annually, so you can still get in your time on the sled. In the summer, temps are in the mid-80s so you can enjoy all your favorite activities.

Did you know? Thomas Jefferson designed the Virginia State Capitol building and Patrick Henry delivered his “Give me liberty or give me death” speech in St. John’s Church.

Southern hospitality: The people of Richmond are some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. When you move to Richmond, you’ll be immersed in all things southern. Have you practiced saying “y’all” yet?
