Monroe Ward

Young Professionals

Monroe Ward is an incredible option for young professionals in the Richmond’s Downtown district. Amazing apartments and condos filled with a mix of students, young professionals, and families, it is perfectly walkable to tons of restaurants, bars and clubs. An added benefit is the ability to walk to work if you work in the downtown area. Just west of Monroe Ward is The Fan District. Home to VCU, with plenty of cheap and high-end food options, tons of bars and coffee shops and great live-music venues. The Fan District is a really interesting mix of young professionals, college students, and families living in the stunning 19th and early 20th-century homes.

The Museum District


If you want to live in the downtown area but get a bit of a reprieve from the VCU/Zoomer neighborhoods then look at The Museum District. Unique apartments, condos and homes built 100 years ago, it is filled with art and history. It also sits just a few minute walk from all the restaurants, bars and shops you could possibly need should you crave a bit more social spunk.

Bellevue is a great neighborhood for families. Located in Northside, the mature tree-lined streets protect beautiful historic homes. While only a 10-minute drive from downtown, Bellevue feels suburban. It’s also surrounded by two amazing green spaces; Bryan Park and Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. These places provide tons of room to hike and bike as well as one of the country's most highly rated Public Gardens for when you’re feeling a bit more contemplative. Finally, you have great public schools and a small but great area for boutique shopping and interesting food options.
