Glen Allen Reviews
I like that my neighbors are welcoming and the environment here is just so accepting! Currently, I am a high school student and I live about 5 miles away from my school. This gives me easy access to my school. There is also a bit of diversity here. I have friends who are from China, Korea, Hispanic, etc. As for the neighborhood, my neighborhood is a calm one. Majority of the families have kids, therefore, there will be plenty of children outside playing when the weather allows it, but they are also well behaved. There is a sense of safety here because the neighborhood gives off a peaceful vibe in general. All in all, I love this place!
I love Glen Allen! I've lived here my entire life and I have never felt unsafe or in danger while living here. It is a good location since it is close to downtown Richmond and Carytown. There are great restaurants and lots of things to do. I love going to the parks in Glen Allen, especially Crump Park. It is a central location and never too far away to anything. It is right near Short Pump - a great place for shopping. I would love to live in Glen Allen for a very long time.
Love the suburban vibe here in Glen Allen! Very friendly people and great hangout spots like the Short Pump Mall, Regal theatre, and amazing restaurants.
