What are some of your favorite things about living here?
Richmond is home. It is where I was born and raised. I have enjoyed living and working where I grew up. Richmond has grown significantly over the years, not only in size, but also in its culture and the many opportunities it provides for work and leisure activities. I appreciate the city-like opportunities with the small town feel. Its location is great too, making it easy to get to the beach, Northern Virginia and Charlottesville without a problem. I think Richmond is by far, the best place to live!
