A confluence of factors, including the Richmond area's unique history and the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, were key reasons why travel guide publisher Frommer's chose the Richmond area as one of the 14 best places in the world to visit in 2014. Richmond is the "epicenter" of Civil War history, with many historic sites that should not be missed as part of any Civil War tour. The City's growing food and beverage culture and outdoor recreation opportunities were also plusses for the designation. Richmond has a thriving culture of new restaurants, craft beers, and emerging wineries. One of the only cities in the world with white water rapids flowing through its center, Richmond offers many opportunities for adventure on the James River as well. Come see us in 2014 and see all Richmond has to offer!
