The Richmond region is centrally located along the East Coast and within a day’s drive of more than half of the United States population. The region, located in the low, rolling hills of the Piedmont region of Virginia, lies between the low level Tidewater region and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The city of Richmond is at the highest navigable point of the tidewaters of the James River, the Falls, which is renowned as one of the best in the country for urban white-water rafting/canoeing/kayaking. Seven rivers flow through the region including the James, Appomattox, Chickahominy, South Anna, North Anna, Pamunkey and Little.
All are popular recreational offering a variety of habitats. The region has a mild, subtropical climate with four distinct seasons. Travel + Leisure magazine recently named the Richmond region as one of five top wine regions to visit.
