I look forward to the guide coming out every week so I can see what events are coming up and make plans with friends! I can always count on the weekly guide to make my mouth water while reading about the newest restaurant or get super excited about an upcoming event.

Hey, just wanted to give you guys a shout out! Living here for about 4 years, I have done a lot in Richmond. Being a busy, active male I don’t always have time to do my research. The RVAx membership has been great for me. I look at the guide multiple times a week for something spontaneous to do. From rock climbing to social events, it has really made things fun and easy. I would recommend it to anyone looking for fun things to do!

...Coming from a small town in South Dakota, Richmond was such a vast difference both in size, culture, and experiences. Even with me being here in Virginia for almost 14 years, I didn’t really grasp how many fun and exciting things were around in Richmond until Sam and Sean appeared! Their weekly guide that comes out is so immensely helpful in knowing what new and fun things are going on around Richmond every week! Things I wouldn’t have even known about on my own! Plus, the RVAx membership is so amazing in the fact that you get to know about brand new and upcoming restaurants, go to soft openings, get fabulous discounts on local shops and restaurants, and you get to know more people in the RVA community that you can share all of these fun RVAx experiences with!...

I have lived in Richmond my whole life and yet still discover a lot about it I did not know while continuing to see why I love this city so much. With the assistance of dynamic Richmond couple Sean and Sam Kanipe and the Richmond Experience, I am able to more easily navigate the Richmond scene. I look forward to reading the guide each week, I receive as a Richmond Experience member and keep each edition to go back to and reference. Each guide is informative, fun, and full of heart. The Richmond Experience helps me get to know my hometown better while constantly informing me of ways to get involved in and give back to the local economy and community. I love it!
