Top 5 / North America

The Mid-Atlantic city of Richmond, Virginia, experiences a seasonal climate, which means chilly winters accompanied by occasional snow. But there is still enough to do to stave off boredom and cabin fever. Here are Richmond’s top outdoor activities that can be done even when it’s freezing outside.

 

Canal Walk

Even when it’s frigid outside, Richmond’s Canal Walk makes for a serene wintertime stroll through refurbished historic buildings, a handful of restaurants and enticing street graffiti. Grab a coffee to stay warm on the walk.

 

Belle Isle

Continue walking through Brown’s Island until you reach the pedestrian bridge that leads across the James River to Belle Isle. Here you can hike, bike or simply sit and watch the rapids roar between the banks.

 

Ice Skate

An ice rink in West Broad Village is open during the winter that rents skates and ice time to adults for $15 and to kids for $14.

 

Post Up at a Brewery

If the cold is too much for you, head inside to one of Richmond’s breweries, like Legend Brewing Company or Blue Bee Cider. The city also hosts brewery tours that ship participants from spot to spot in a van.

 

Shop in Carytown

Stroll along the quaint Cary Street and pop into boutique shops for an afternoon. Pull over into one of the cozy cafés for a mid-afternoon coffee or tea.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
