Lifestyle

 My home is in a gated "active adults" community called Crossridge in the suburbs of Richmond, Virginia. We boast  friendly neighbors who enjoy the peace and security.  Our club facilities include tennis courts, indoor pool, outdoor pool, a fitness room, a small library, and many available activities.  There are sidewalks for pleasant walks. Most necessities can be found at the shopping center which is located just outside the gates.  The true value for visitors is the location of the home and how it allows one to pursue interests whether in the fine arts, or recreation, or history, or sports.
The center of Richmond can be reached in 20 minutes.  Here is a link to Trip Advisor which lists things to do:
