I have been living in Short Pump, Va for almost 11 years. It's a picturesque little suburb of Richmond with a low crime rate and some of the best schools in this part of the country. After having lived in the big city for most of my life, moving here and becoming part of the close-knit community has spoiled me - I will never go back to a big metropolis!
It's really great to experience quiet, country living yet have the city of Richmond nearby. Jobs are plentiful and I don't kow a single person who doesn't love their job thanks to there being no "rat race" feel to our little town. When it's time to relax and have some fun, Richmond offers family-friendly activities like Segway and trolley tours, food tasting events, and indoor gaming and laser tag. For the adults there is the Richmond Funny Bone Comedy Club, escape room experiences, and pampering at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa. Beautiful local gardens and historic museums and homes provide breathtaking scenery that just wraps up the experience of living in such a wonderful place!
