Chester VA - What a lovely area - 7/3/2007
I just recently discovered a little suburb of Richmond, called Chester.
Yes, it is small and not much going on in that area - but if you want a peaceful area to live - it seems pretty ideal.

I went to Wells Realty, was greeted like I was one of the family, and that is fine with me.

For the most part - the areas outside of Richmond are green, and farm-like. IF you like quiet back roads, and peaceful neighborhoods - then you've come to the right place. Most businesses are within a 10 minute ride - there seems to be all the necessary places within the Midlothian area - Starbucks, Krogers, Dillards - it's all there, with a new metropolitan feel.

If you want hustle and bustle - go to the city! There's enough historical value and tourism to keep you occupied. It's the quiet that is hard to come by. You have your share of both in this part of the country. It's no wonder folks are looking for this sort of scenario.

The older neighborhoods ie:Dutch Gap, Chester Heights, or anywhere just off Jefferson Davis Hwy that was built prior to 1980 are the best places to live. Dutch Gap has easy access to Henricus Park and the boat landing at Read More

Chester - Bedroom Community to Richmond, VA - 4/29/2006
Chester, because of its location midway between Richmond, VA and Petersburg, VA, was once just a train station. With residential growth in affluent Chesterfield County (where Chester is located), the village of Chester has grown into a sizable suburb of Richmond, with many conveniences and easy access to health, education and retail facilities because of the network of roads in the Central Virginia Read More

I agree... don't move here - 3/27/2006
The people aren't very friendly unless you've lived here for years and years or all your life and have dozens of generations to back you up. Plus there are tons of yuppies, you know suburban SUV driving Soccer Moms and White-Collar Dads. Unless you are one of those people. Then, I guess, you'll love it. Be prepared to have lots of money to live comfortably, Read More
