What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Richmond

Lots of family owned businesses to walk to. Sidewalks not blocked by old cars or garbage. I see many kids walking with parents.

Lots of diversity. Wide age range. View of the bay. It is fairly quiet and central to many attractions in the Bay Area.

Great neighbors. Near public transportation. A place anyone would ike to live. Nothing else comes to mind no restaurant no bars no shops no where to go with my familys

I like wss as k ok king around with my friends and it's very fun cause we don't. Ha e to worry about tripping over garbage that much uh uh lol lol sorry bruh I. Oh nice that I try

It is try rural and agricultural so I have animals roaming freely. It is a friendly community with environmentally concerned citizens. Neighbors watch your house for unusual activity. Love the scenery.

Quiet neighborhood. Nice people. Nice houses. houses are great for living in and raising or starting a family. The backyards are also great because there is plenty of space for a nice little garden or maybe a basketball hoop

All About

Living in Richmond, CA

North of San Francisco, the city of Richmond's recreation department prides itself on offering an accessible and inclusive outdoors experience while celebrating the community's culture.

The city hosts a number of festivals and special events that allow Richmond apartment renters to enjoy their city's ever-growing cultural identity. Its yearly Cinco de Mayo festival celebrates Mexican heritage with food, dance, art and a one-mile long parade. The holiday commemorates the Mexican army's improbable defeat of French occupants at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Richmond has a strong Latino population, but apartment renters of all ethnicities enjoy the festivities.

Additionally, Richmond apartment renters celebrate the state holiday of Juneteeth with an annual parade and festival. Juneteeth - or July 19 - is celebrated in a number of states as the official day that slavery was abolished in the United States. Apartment residents in Richmond can partake in the event's sights and sounds, including performances from gospel, blues, hip-hop and rhythm and blues musicians.

The Richmond Homefront Festival provides an opportunity for residents to celebrate their city's history. Richmond has a varied and diverse past, and played a pivotal role in the West Coast's shipbuilding industry. Four local shipyards served the United States during World War II, and apartment renters can learn about Richmond's important place in wartime history at the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park.
