Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center A Top RVA Destination

Home to the Commonwealth’s premiere science museum, famous historical monuments and the former Sausage King, Jimmy Dean, Richmond, Va. added to the list last summer when the Washington Redskins packed their bags and traveled 115 miles south to commence training camp at the brand new, state-of-the-art Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center.

Having a $10.5 million impact on the City of Richmond, over 165,000 Redskins fans flocked to last year’s three-week training camp.

Now, with the second Richmond training camp a little over two months away, it makes sense that the “destination” is a reason to come to the Commonwealth’s capital.

Movoto.com compiled a list of the “26 things you need to know about Richmond before you move there” and No. 5 was none other than Redskins training camp.

Not only can you catch a pass from Robert Griffin III (and Pierre Garcon, who was notorious for throwing the pigskin into the crowd after making a spectacular catch last summer), but the players enjoy chatting with the fans and signing memorabilia after practice sessions.

Below, is a gallery from last year’s Fan Appreciation Day where the player’s gave a little back and thanked Richmond for their great support:
