Stay outside and in the know this summer

May 26, 2014 1:38pm

These kids look like they know what they’re doing. They must be newsletter subscribers.

Memorial Day Weekend, the unofficial start of summer, is almost in the books, and that means the season of hiking, biking, paddling, camping, fishing, climbing, tubing, rock hopping, sun bathing, and general outdoors carousing is upon us.

Few cities in the good old U.S. of A. can compare to Richmond in the majority of the above categories, but that doesn’t mean all of us, even lifelong Richmonders, know every good swimming hole, mountain bike trail, smallmouth spawning ground, boulder to climb, or hidden-gem park in greater RVA. That’s where RichmondOutside.com comes in. It is, quite literally, our job to know these things — and to make sure that you know about them, too.

One way we do that is through our weekly newsletter. Every Thursday, subscribers get an email blast with a smorgasbord of outdoors-related content — the top area news from the week, a look at a local destination, a feature written by one of our local experts or an eye-catching piece of news from farther afield. Every week is different and there’s often exclusive content that newsletter subscribers see before anyone else.

So enter your email below, and let us be your guide to a summer of fun in Central Virginia and beyond. (And if you haven’t already, check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.)

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
