What should we do today? This season is hot, long, and can sometimes feel boring. Luckily for you, I’ve got the must-have checklist for summer in Richmond!
I spent an entire day just scouring Facebook events, Google, and Instagram to find the best of the best things for you to do this summer. From museums to visit, to festivals you won’t want to miss – there’s something for everyone. A lot of these are free, so make sure you click on the links to find out if you need to RSVP or get tickets.
Keep on scrolling to view the master list of summer-specific activities in RVA! I will try to continue updating this as summer goes on.
