Although I didn't live there for too long, I had a good experience with Bon Air. The neighborhood is safe and it's easy to walk around, except if you're looking for a safe way to navigate past the community pool or Baptist church and its subsequent stores. The stores are also all right, but our favorites went out of business so there's not much that I find interesting about the area anymore besides the shops off of Huguenot (including the Einstein's Bagels)

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.
