Welcome To The City Of Opportunity

LYH is a quintessential Virginian city with a rich cultural character, a vital sense of the past and a growing contemporary energy. We celebrate our history and we look fearlessly to our future.

We’re a small city of outsized opportunities, with a wealth of industries that are defining economic development. We’re re-energizing our walkable downtown and our James riverfront. And we’re retooling our ambitions, seeking to become a truly welcoming place that offers businesses, newcomers and locals alike a seat at the table. LYH Loves You.
