What to Do in Richmond

Are you coming to Miss Fisher Con this July? We're excited to welcome you to Richmond! We've compiled a list of a few of the local attractions that can make your trip more fun, but don't let us stop you from checking things out yourself - there is so much more to do. For a more comprehensive list, check out the city’s official website. And, of course, be sure to call ahead to check that the attractions are open and taking appropriate precautions!

Travel tips

As you start making your travel plans and booking your flights, here are some tips from a local:

  • Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and Dulles International Airport (IAD) in DC, and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) outside Baltimore may have cheaper or more direct options than flying directly into Richmond
  • There is an Amtrak train that runs from DC to Richmond for only a few dollars each way
  • If you're coordinating travel with other attendees, consider renting a car together to get from one of these larger airports to Richmond
