RVC Beach Volleyball Championships



It’s a destination for urbanites and nature lovers. It’s on the banks of the James, and the edge of the city. Rocketts Landing is Richmond’s forward thinking waterfront neighborhood. Located just five minutes from downtown Richmond, this homage to new urbanism is set on a site that was once considered the busiest inland port in America. This modern neighborhood is home to thriving businesses and hundreds of residents. It’s right on the Capital Bike Trail, and soon, it will be connected to express transit by the city’s GRTC Pulse service. With its urban riverfront landscape, Rocketts is a place that inspires and invigorates. For more information, visit www.rockettsvillage.com.
