About Metro Richmond VA

Richmond is the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia and is the center of the Greater Richmond Metro Area which includes the adjacent counties of Chesterfield, Hanover, and Henrico. Ideally situated in the central part of the state, Richmond is less than two hours from Washington, DC, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Richmond’s economy is primarily driven by law, finance, and government, with federal, state, and local governmental agencies, as well as notable legal and banking firms, located in the downtown area. Six Fortune 500 companies are headquartered here and the area ranks 15th in the nation for number of Fortune 1000 companies per 100,000 residents (in metro areas of 1.5 million residents or less).

There’s something for everyone here! From history to the arts and culture, hiking and other outdoor activities, entertainment, shopping and dining, Richmond is a great place to live and work.
