Midlothian Lifestyle Partners Share Their Favorite Places in and Around Richmond

Richmond, Virginia, is a charming city that offers a perfect blend of history and natural beauty. Nestled along the scenic James River, it provides breathtaking views and plenty of outdoor activities. The city's historic architecture, art culture, and food scene add to its unique character, making it a great place to live and explore. Midlothian Lifestyle caught up with partners April Morris and Michelle Davenport, who shared their favorite things to do in and around our remarkable city.

April Morris

FNP and Owner of InnoVitamin Solutions
Some of my best-loved places to explore in Richmond are sporting events. Whether catching a Flying Squirrels baseball game at the Diamond or a Richmond Ivy Women’s soccer game at City Stadium, my family and I enjoy going to games, eating snacks from local food trucks, and hanging out on a beautiful night. Being able to do the wave with other spectators, catch a t-shirt, or watch fireworks after the game is an added bonus!

Another favorite activity of ours is taking a boat tour of downtown Richmond with Riverfront Canal Cruises. This delightful boat ride on the James River along the Kanawha Canal not only offers a unique perspective of the city but also serves as a fascinating history lesson. In less than an hour, we get to learn all about Richmond's rich history while enjoying the scenic beauty of the river. The added fun of spotting wildlife during the cruise makes it a perfect family activity!

Michelle Davenport

Owner/Distiller at Three Crosses Distilling Co.

Exploring has always been woven into the fabric of our family. Before becoming small business owners, my husband John and I used to take our kids on road trips to explore Virginia. We discovered and fell in love with Powhatan County while searching for a location for our distillery, Three Crosses Distilling. If you have a free day and want to hit the road, head to Powhatan County. We have a state park for hiking, camping, and water sports and several charming shops, including The Mercantile at Three Crosses, good breweries, and great restaurants like The Table at Three Crosses. There are many hidden gems throughout the county. If you are interested in finding out what Powhatan has to offer, you can visit the website visitpowhatan.com to explore all our county has to offer, or stop by the distillery for a cocktail, and we can direct you to all the great spots!
