Richmond City Info:
Richmond is the capital in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Served by the Richmond International Airport located in nearby Sandston, it is seven miles southeast of Richmond.
Between 1963 and 1965, there was a huge, “downtown boom,” that led to the construction of more than 700 buildings in the city.
Recent renovations included the rebuilt James R
iver and Kanawha Canal and Haxall Canal, now designed as a Canal Walk. The riverfront project has brought this 1.25-mile corridor back to life, with trendy loft apartments, restaurants, shops and hotels winding along the Canal Walk, along with canal boat cruises and walking tours. The National Park Service’s Richmond Civil War Visitor Center, in the Tredegar Iron Works, hosts three floors of exhibits and artifacts, films, a bookstore, picnic areas and more.
Downtown has always been a hub, with the Great Turning Basin for boats, the world’s only triple crossing of rail lines, and the intersection of two major interstates.
Other areas of the economy that have developed recently in the city include pharmaceuticals, insurance, advertising, biotechnology, education, tour
ism health services, or semi-conductors. In 2006, Forbes also named Richmond as the sixth best city in which to find employment among the 100 largest metropolitan areas in the nation.
The Region also boasts more than 400 years of history including the second successful English settlement, the site of Patrick Henry’s famous “Give me liberty or give me death” speech and the former White House of the Confederacy.
