Hello! My husband,I and 13 month old son will be moving from San Diego to Richmond next spring. Our main reasons for the move are to be closer to family on East Coast and lower cost of living to allow me to stay home with our son. Currently, I work and my husband stays home as he is getting his MBA. I lived in the DC area previously so I am comfortable with Living in VA however what is the best community to live in Richmond with many activities,stores near by? We prefer a suburb. I can't wait to be a SAHM but am worried I a may be a bit isolated in a new city. Thanks for any recommendations!

wave.gif  I live in Henrico County, which is the county surrounding Richmond City. (To get an idea on a map you could look at Short Pump VA. I have not lived in the area long as I relocated myself just over a year ago. When I posted on here looking for information, some directed me to a site that is for Richmond. Lots of nice people who are local to what you need info wise.

I live in Chesterfield (just south of Richmond). If you can afford it Short Pump or Ashland are the nicest areas with the best schools. We lived in Short Pump a few years ago but moved when we bought our home. I miss SP, I loved it.

Short Pump is hands down the best place to live! I Chose to live in Short Pump when I moved to the area 6 yrs ago. Everything is at your finger tips! You have the best schools and you never have to leave the Area for anything. We have the Town Center, The children's museum( you little one will love it) shopping and dining,you name it Short Pump has it! It's a little pricey compared to surrounding counties but coming from San Diego and previously living in DC... You can afford it.
