Living in Richmond

These urban neighborhoods boast tree-lined streets, Victorian townhouses, converted Richmond apartments and duplexes. People who like a suburban-feel within an urban environment may prefer Woodland Heights, just across the James River in Southside. Hugely popular among artists, Woodland Heights is known for its diverse architecture and quiet parks. Bellevue has a similar atmosphere, and is located at the very edge of the city limits.

Richmond has become more welcoming for bikers in the past few years, and is home to one of the best urban mountain bike systems in the southeast.
