The RTD’s Discover Richmond touches on history, people, food, culture, travel and more – the topics that help define our great city and region. Enjoy the journey!

Discover Richmond - August 2020 Edition

This year, we see our region's amazing features through the fractured lens of a pandemic. But amid the utter disorientation of 2020, Richmond has shown resolve.

So it's fitting that the focal point of this edition, an annual guide to the region’s destinations and history, is our compilation "The Best," a rundown of favorite local businesses and culture as voted on by RTD readers.

Our region has earned a lot of "best" designations in recent years. Here's to even more in healthier times ahead.
