My 2023 Summer To-Do’s

Summer is here, and with it, so many great things to do around town (and just a bit outside of town)! Every season, I like to make a list of things that I want to do. Not because I have to, but because they are some of the things I particularly love. They’re often simple, sometimes free, and they’re just the things that make a season wonderful to ME. Do you do this? If not, I’d highly recommend it. It makes you a little more conscious of those simple things, and how they brighten your season.

So without further ado, here’s my list for Summer 2023, filled with some very RVA things to do…

  1. Support local at one of our amazing farmer’s markets
  2. Take a stroll through Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens
  3. Enjoy some quintessentially Richmond Pizza on the patio at Bottom’s Up
  4. Rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard at James River Outfitters and hit the river
  5. Take in a concert at Brown’s Island
  6. Grab a coffee and pastry from Sub Rosa and head to Libby Hill Park to marvel over the view
  7. Play a round of mini golf at Patterson Golf Park
  8. Enjoy a late lunch and wine tasting at Upper Shirley (just a 30-minute drive)
  9. Carytown Watermelon Festival for food, music, fun, and watermelon
  10. Grab a Hanover tomato (or 2), some Duke’s, and good bread, and have a tomato sandwich on the porch!
