Its observation deck is open to the public and offers impressive 360-degree views of the city.

Farther to the west, sporting and entertainment events take place throughout the year at the Richmond Coliseum, and the Greater Richmond Convention Center hosts meetings and brings a range of associations and groups to the city.
