Make self-care a priority this year by allowing yourself space and time to learn, enjoy, rest and be with our guide to celebrating wellness in all kinds of ways while you live, work and play in downtown RVA.
Finding peace in nature while living in a city can be hard, but in Richmond, the James River (and a large portion of the city's parks system) flows right through the heart of downtown Richmond. Explore Richmond's ecosystem and bring yourself closer to the elements by foot, bike, or kayak alone or with the help of businesses like Riverside Outfitters and Waterfront RVA that offer expeditions for all experience levels.
In downtown Richmond, you can realize your dreams of being a ballerina with classes from the Richmond Ballet, join an uplifting and inspiring community with SportsBackers, or go the more traditional route by joining one of downtown's many gyms.
Put on an apron and try your hand at a cooking class with Mise En Place, take an art class with one of downtown's many painters, potters or creatives, or seek out inspiration for your next interest by exploring the Arts & Culture scene throughout downtown RVA.
Shop small and sustainably when you re-vamp your ritual by supporting downtown businesses dedicated to wellness and health like Maven Made and Adiva Naturals.
Unplug and unwind with mindful and intentional rest like reading a book from Fountain Bookstore or one of Richmond's public libraries.
There is no better time than now to find the ways to break out of routine and light the fire inside! Finding fun looks different for everyone, but going on an adventure is great place to start! Plan your next adventure and explore all that downtown has to offer here!
