Living Here

Goochland County is a small community with a lot of heart and soul. A rural county located on the western edge of the Greater Richmond region, Goochland offers residents the best of both worlds. Fresh air, open spaces, and miles and miles of river are all here, providing a refreshing and beautiful place to call home. And with the highway close by, urban attractions and amenities are just minutes away.

Goochland offers a high quality of life at a reasonable cost. Housing options are varied, and housing costs are about 10% below the national average. This translates to a housing market that can suit different tastes and budgets.

A variety of cultural, entertainment, and recreational activities are at your fingertips in Goochland. Tubing on the James River, bike rides through the countryside, wine tastings, movies at the drive-in, live music from local bands, and farmer's markets. With these things and more, you don't have to go far to have fun. However, if you are after an adventure outside county lines, Washington, D.C., the Blue Ridge Mountains, and Virginia Beach are all within a two-hour drive.
