Shockoe Bottom Reviews
They are finally fixing the roads so that has improved tremendously. There is a decent amount of petty crimes that are all over the city and surrounding areas. Overall, I love the area! There is also an abundance of amazing restaurants.
I moved here about a month ago from Norfolk VA. After an extensive apartment search, I narrowed my scope down to the Shockoe Bottom area. The area offers all inclusive uniquely renovated apartments in a safe neighborhood for very fair prices. I love that there are lots of restaurants within walking distance, and downtown is just a few minutes away. I have close access to the interstate to get to work without a fuss. I'm very happy with my choice to live in Shockoe Bottom!
I’ve lived here for over a decade. Shocker Bottom is an entertainment hotspot! They’re numerous restaurants, bars, hotels and museums. A scenic bike trail along the canal and plenty of places to live. It’s a very lively and exciting place to live, play and visit.
