Kings Dominion Virginia
Spring is back in Virginia, and that means one thing for thrill-seeking families: Kings Dominion is back too. Our state's biggest amusement park opened for the season on March 30, and its rides and interactive attractions just might be the most exciting things between Richmond and Washington, D.C. If your family is looking at Richmond homes for sale, head north to Doswell for a preview of the adventures you could have all summer long.

What makes Kings Dominion Amusement Park so much fun for Virginia families? Here are some of our favorite things to do while visiting this 400-acre playground:

  • Ride a World-Class Roller Coaster
    Ready to get your blood pumping? More than 60 rides are spread out across the park, but the main attraction is a collection of awe-inspiring roller coasters. Try all 12 coasters while you're there, including the aptly named Intimidator 305 (which takes you 305 feet into the air) and the Coney Island-inspired wooden beast The Grizzly. And don't miss the latest addition, Twisted Timbers! This mid-Atlantic first puts a steel track on traditional wooden supports, and it simulates the path of a mysterious 1950 disaster in Hanover Hill Orchard.

You don't have to travel to the Bierhalls in Germany or the karaoke bars in Japan to sample some amazing craft brews. Virginia residents don't need to book a flight to one of the fastest growing beer scenes — the #1 beer destination in the world is located here in Richmond.

Named 2018's #1 Beer Destination in the World by Vinepair, Richmond is booming with craft breweries that are multiplying by the year. To date, there are over 30 unique craft breweries in the city and dozens more tapping fresh new beers in the coming years. With our rich beer culture dating back to over a century ago.

Richmond Restaurants for Lunch
Whoever said breakfast was the most important meal of the day? Lunch is a crucial way to refuel, too. Stepping away from your desk for lunch may help boost your productivity and creativity at work. And here in Richmond, lunchtime might be the best time to dine. Virginia's capital is rich with family-owned diners, historic restaurants, and other charming and delicious restaurants that make a mean midday meal. What better place to celebrate National Make Lunch Count Day?

This national holiday falls on Wednesday, April 13, and it's designed to get you out of your cubicle and into a restaurant booth with your co-workers. Our REALTORS® also happen to think it's a great excuse to patronize one of Richmond's locally owned restaurants, especially if you're browsing Richmond homes for sale and want to familiarize yourself with our neighborhoods and residents.

Here are a few of our favorite places to make your lunch count on April 13:

  1. Mama J's Kitchen - 415 N. 1st Street, Richmond, VA 23219
    Ready to indulge in some mouth-watering soul food in a cozy, relaxing, and welcoming environment? Come to the heart of Historic Jackson Ward and grab a table at Mama J's Kitchen. This well-loved, affordable neighborhood staple is family-owned, and those West End family recipes might be the secret to its success. While you might catch a sighting of a pro athlete or famous musician over your catfish, fried chicken, or candied yams, the star of the show is Mama J herself, Velma Johnson.

Richmond Easter for Families
Moving to Richmond this year? Springtime is a great time to live in Virginia's capital city, and you don't have to be a resident yet to find out why. While you're looking for Richmond homes for sale, get a feel for our city's attractions and traditions too. Easter is a family-friendly holiday that takes over our shops, gardens, and landmarks every year, and your family is welcome to join the fun for our 2019 celebrations.

Here are some of our favorite ways to celebrate Easter in Richmond, Virginia:

  • Family Easter at Maymont - 1700 Hampton Street, Richmond, Virginia 23220
    Maymont Mansion, a lush, lavish Gilded Age estate now owned by the City of Richmond, is the perfect spot to kick off Easter weekend. Come to the 100-acre grounds for Family Easter at Maymont, a pre-Easter extravaganza that starts at 10 am on Saturday, April 20. Sponsored by Dominion Energy, this ticketed event fills the Victorian mansion's Carriage House Lawn with face painters, inflatable slides, life-size games, an obstacle course, and even craft stations to make your own baskets, bonnets, and plants.
