It’s spring! The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, the pollen is threatening car windows and breathing patterns alike. Now that the weather is finally in agreement with the calendar, it’s time to get ready for the season.
Here are our eight tips for surviving spring in RVA.
Pollen and a dry windshield make for an awful combo. But, the arrival of the pollen also signals awesome outdoor events like Ginter Botanical Garden’s Million Blooms festival!
The last thing you want to do is drive around the VCU campus that Saturday morning. If you’re running the race, and need to park somewhere close to the starting line, try Carver - there’s a few good (and rarely taken) spots towards Leigh Street.
Wait for the students to be too busy with finals to have time for the river - you’ll have a lot more space to stretch out.
If you don’t, you’ll have a wildflower garden in your front lawn before you can even sneeze at it.
Be prepared to defrost your car at least once more this season - there’s always that one freak cold snap.
If you’re planning on doing some gardening this year, it’s time to start! Before you finalize your plans, however, make sure to set aside some time to attend Maymont’s Herbs Galore & More on April 27th!
Richmond’s Greek Festival is May 30th - a perfect way to celebrate greek culture and food, as well as the coming summer.
Richmond’s spring evenings are just perfect - not too hot, not too cold, and always a great time for some baseball or soccer. Drinks, fun, sunsets, and fireworks - what’s not to like?
