The Fan Reviews

I visit the fan weekly for work purposes. I lived nearby and used to visit it for recreational purposes years ago, so I can make present day comparisons. What I like that it maintains its value across the years. The Apartments and homes and restaurants are still there and are doing well in structure and in business. Everyone can find a restaurant according to their tastes. Some specialize in healthy foods, some in grills, some in specialty sandwiches, and of pizza. Or you can find restaurants with all included. There are so many small finds in businesses on just about every corner. The young are infatuated, the older can visit their favorite places. You'll even see families out walking. There are private, local schools and charter public schools. I become more fascinated every time I visit.

Family oriented, nice neighbors and quite. Also young college students. Lots of bars and restaurants for you and your friends to socialize at.
The Fan is a great up and coming area. The community is littered with restaurants and many shops to keep you entertained. Also the area is known for its amazing music scene as you can go out and listen to many genres of music- from rock to jazz, it's all here. There are many VCU students living in the area, so that 's another plus, but maybe not so attractive to people looking for a more quiet atmosphere. Overall, great area, close to Downtown RVA, VCU's main campus, The Museum District, Willow Lawn, and Cary town.
