  • Richmond International Raceway

    Richmond Sports & Outdoors

    Most of the other tips mention the two NASCAR races that happen at RIR in late Spring and late Summer (usually May and September). However, the BEST RACING AT RIR happens in June!!! If you've never seen the Indy Racing League, then you are in for a treat! This North-American open-wheel series might appeal to fans of formula one. The crowd is about...

  • The Diamond stadium

    Richmond Sports & Outdoors

    The Richmond Braves, the minor league farm team for the Atlanta Braves, holds all its home games at the Diamond on the Boulevard just northwest of downtown Richmond.

  • Bogey's Sports Park

    Richmond Sports & Outdoors

    Bogey’s Sports Park is on the western outskirts of the Richmond area. It is mainly a mini golf course, but there is also a driving range and batting cage. The most memorable time there was with Nat and Bill. Bill played all right, but Nat’s ball went in the water so often it should have come with scuba gear. To be fair, it is a hard course. I enjoy...

My first experience with the Coliseum was when the Ringling Brothers Circus would perform here. In the 1980s, the international food festival moved here after the Richmond Arena closed. Besides sporting events, the Coliseum has been the host of...

  • G Force Karts

    Richmond Sports & Outdoors

    G-Force is an absolute blast. Our son has been racing there for a couple years and he is a really good racer. The carts are generally very powerful and good handling. It is also a great place to have a birthday party. HOWEVER.... In the last 6 months the owner of the place has totally screwed up the check-in and race tracking process. I do not...

  • Robbins Stadium

    Richmond Sports & Outdoors

    Robbins Stadium is the basketball stadium for the University of Richmond Spiders. David and I in 2004 went to 2 of the Spider's games here at Robbins Stadium. The stadium itself is very nice on the inside. I really like the complex to be on of the older ones for colleges. The food inside is pretty good at the vendor's and as usual pretty high. The...

  • Go for a hike!

    Whenever I think about sport activities in Virginia I think about our Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington with its fitness club and roof swimming pool as well as about the Shenandoah National Park in western Virginia, southwest of Washington, DC, which offers over 500 miles of trails, including 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail. It's a paradise...
