Richmond Events This Week: July 30 – August 5, 2018

Family-Friendly Richmond Events

It’s been a rainy week here in Richmond, but fortunately, Richmond offers plenty of family activities for any kind of weather. And with back-to-school coming up faster than our kids even realize, this week, we decided to focus on family activities that centered around Richmond’s many amazing historical sites. After all, what better way to get your kids back in learning mode than with fun, interactive sites that also teach them about the rich history that surrounds them? To get you started on your own history tour of Richmond, be sure to check out Best Historical Sites for Families in Richmond.

In the meantime, we’ve found tons of family activities that will get everyone in your crew excited. From kid-friendly theater to outdoor activities to even more historical events and celebrations, Richmond offers something for every age and interest.
