Richmond county is a big community of people. There could be more activities to do around the city, however there are several theaters and restaurants. The magnet schools are highly recognized. I enjoy living here.
Growing up in Richmond county was an interesting experience. The people were diverse and sometimes people would even live differently. The only thing I would say that was annoying about living in Richmond county, was that everyone pretty much knew everyone.
