NBC12 VIEWPOINT: A good time to be RVA

By: Kym Grinnage email

The summer is more  than half way over, but there is still so much left to discover in the "new" Richmond.  Richmond offers more to do than I can remember in my 22 years living here. If you want to experience art, culture, dining and entertainment in a vibrant environment, your hometown is the place to be. So if you haven't made your final vacation plans for the summer. Plan a staycation in your own backyard.

Now that we are branded as the RVA, Venture Richmond and RVA Creates are leading the charge in telling the story about what makes Richmond special and unique. And if you want to help tell the story of Richmond in a unique and creative way, go to NBC12.com/rvacreates.

And as you continue to experience what is  good about Richmond, remember to stop and listen to the music. If Jazz and R& B are your cup of tea make sure you attend the Richmond Jazz Festival at Maymont. Get the best of what Richmond has to offer, vibrant music in a majestic setting. To learn more, go to jazzatmaymont.com.

The summer may be in the second half, but the best is yet to come.
