Richmond, CA sometimes gets a bad rap, but it’s one of the most exciting cities in the Bay Area. Sandwiched in between the San Francisco Bay and the San Pablo Bay, Richmond offers a more temperate climate than much of the Bay Area. Richmond has the northernmost BART stop and a great bus system. Nearly every home in Richmond has easy access to I-80, I-580 and Highway 4, making an easy commute to San Francisco or anywhere in the East Bay. Hop on the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge to hit the ocean beaches or Marin County shopping.
Like many other cities in the Bay Area, Richmond has a checkered past. As recently as 2004, it was ranked the 12th most dangerous city in America. A lot has changed. Now it doesn’t even make the list of the most dangerous cities in California. It is, however, more affordable than at least two of those cities which did make the list.
Richmond is a great place for families. You can buy a single family home for less than a condo in many Bay Area cities. It has child-friendly playgrounds and a great choice of schools.
Sip a great cup of coffee at Catahoula Coffee or chow down on some Mexican food at any number of taquerias. If you’re looking to start a business, there are opportunities galore! Richmond is on an upward trajectory, so you might as well get in on the ground floor.
