Southern Living recently included the Richmond Region in its round-up of destinations to travel to next year. The lifestyle magazine, which profiles Southern culture, attractions, and food, featured the region in a profile of 12 places to visit in 2023.
The article highlights Monument Avenue and the Monumental Conversations virtual tour, as well as the Poe Museum, Kings Dominion, and Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. The Lindow Row Inn, Jefferson Hotel, and Quirk Hotel Richmond were also named as places to stay.
“National news coverage like this is exciting and builds community pride while helping introduce the region to new audiences,” said Jack Berry, president and CEO of Richmond Region Tourism, the nonprofit organization that promotes the region’s tourism on behalf of seven local jurisdictions. “Every day, our team works to highlight our inclusive and welcoming region through marketing and promotions to attract new visitors and events.”
Tourism continues to gain momentum in the region: Richmond Region Tourism recently announced that visitor spending generated a record $2.9 billion for the local economy while supporting almost 24,000 jobs.
