I moved to Richmond, CA from Charlotte, NC about two years ago. There really isn't that big of a difference in the two cities as they are both large in size, and there are plenty of things to do, especially for families and those who like to stay active. If you live in the city, you can expect to pay about $800 for a two-bedroom apartment or home. This is normal for almost every area of Richmond.
The people in the city are very friendly. I haven't met a stranger yet, but I have noticed that some of the teenagers need to work on their manners. There have been a few times when I have been walking down the sidewalk in town, and a group of teenagers will come by on skateboards without bothering to stop.
This is an area that is full of history. There are several parks, including Point Isabel. This is my favorite place to go before sunset. I can walk my dog in the park and hike on the trails. Hilltop Lake Park is a place where many families gather to play ball or simply enjoy the warm sunshine. It makes you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere in the midst of a bustling city. When it comes to restaurants, there isn't one set kind of food that can be ordered. There are numerous ethnicities when it comes to foo choices, but my favorite place to go is Casper's Hot Dogs. It's a small restaurant, but the hot dogs and hamburgers served are delicious and piled high with almost any topping you can imagine. The fries are cut by hand every day, and there are sweet treats like pie slices and pieces of cake that will make your mouth water.
