Richmond Named One of Frommer's Top Destinations for 2014

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND (WRIC) -

Richmond has been named one of Frommer's "Top Destinations for 2014."

According to Frommer's, "Richmond is coming into its own as a choice regional destination with a growing slate of breweries, farm-to-table restaurants, and even white-water river rapid activities cutting right through downtown."

In devising their list, Frommer's editors look at politics, accessibility, popularity, major events and whether a destination is potentially affordable for average travelers.

"We're thrilled that Frommer's has brought attention to what we all know: that the Richmond Region is a top-notch travel destination with a tremendous amount to offer visitors," Richmond Region Tourism President and CEO Jack Berry says in a press statement. "We have what visitors want: amazing restaurants, world-class exhibits, major events, affordability and accessibility. It's wonderful to see this recognition from a top travel website with a very large audience of potential travelers."
