Now Everyone Knows: Richmond is Outside’s Best River TownPosted: September 11, 2012
I’d like to think that this Avad Fan had something to do with Outside magazine’s current cover.
With the subtitle “How once polluted Richmond became the unlikeliest river-recreation mecca in the country”, Outside magazine was clearly surprised that Richmond was the winner of its Best River Town in America contest, but we’ve known the truth about Richmond on the James for quite a while now. Though softer than many of the adventures that Outside magazine tends to feature, we love exploring this historical water both northwest and southeast of downtown Richmond’s whitewater and sharing it with family and friends and Avad Fan readers.
Sadly power-boating season is quickly coming to a close, but keep your fingers crossed for some beautiful fall weather so that we can spend some final time on the water in the Best River Town in America.
