Richmond is a city with both country-fried small-town friendliness and modern suburb conveniences, such as mall shopping, grocery stores, a really nice golf course, and a nice, old Main Street with local bars and restaurants. For live music, Richmond residents can head on over to the Currier's Music World on Main Street. However, the best way to pass time around here is with a fishing pole. Check out all the nearby lakes, rivers, and streams and you will find some great fishing holes, not to mention a few good ol' fish tales to tell your friends.
Cheap apartments and duplexes can be found throughout the city. Apartments can cost anywhere from $400 to $600, so there are plenty of rentals available for any budget-minded renter. Or, if you want to get a little more fancy with your new property, check out some of the new, roomy townhomes on Taylor Fork Lake, which rent in the $1,200 - $1,300 price range.
When it comes to amenities, rentals around here provide the bare minimum. You might get a laundry room and some BBQ pits, but that's about it. So, look for those rental properties that offer a convenient location for having fun, rather than trying to find apartments for rent with a hot tub, a fitness center, or any other fancy-pants luxuries.
If you’re looking for a pet friendly rental, then a little more legwork may be in order. Most apartments have varying pet policies, so you will have to call and make sure they fit your needs. Also, plan on saving up an extra $200 or so for the pet deposit.
Like the town, this guide will be nice, small, and simple. There's not a whole lot to know, but there's plenty of things to get into around here. So, come on down and check everything this city has to offer. Good luck!
