Richmond's Visitors page has a calendar of city events, an interactive map of the city and links to the community's visitor centers and visitor guides. Lists of the city's artistic and performance venues, museums, monuments and cemeteries, gardens and shopping centers are also available on the same page.

The Visitors tab of the Santa Fe city website has similar information. In addition, under the website's Departments tab there is a link to the Santa Fe Department of Parks and Recreation page, where you find a directory of city parks, recreational opportunities and a parks and recreation calendar.

Information on attractions and events in Salt Lake City are available under the city website's City Life tab. The City Life section details the Salt Lake Jazz Festival and other annual events, art and music venues, and seasonal events such as the Downtown Farmers Market and Ski Utah.
