Everytime I go by this suburb of Richmond, I want to stay. and establish my future home. The area is notable for restaurants, retail stores and living for seniors, families and young professionals. Also nearby are interstates that take you from one side of the Greater Richmond area to the next. Within and nearby also are two major parks, two hospitals and several medical offices. Yes you will find a major store chain like Walmart and Target, but there are also many small chain stores and restaurants. The area is mostly quiet. You can believe that some of the best apartments may have a waiting list. This area is well liked by many.
I like my neighborhood, because its the suburbs but it still has nature, woods, and trees everywhere.
While i live in a small neighborhood, there has been minor criminal activity, but mostly due to leaving cars unlocked and the like. nothing major and the police are responsive. I feel very safe in my home and neighborhood and the entire chesterfield area.
