Albemarle Reviews

15 reviews
All Categories
My Community is small, connected and very close, with families living in the area for 50 to 70 years. Both set of my Grandparents are still living and have lived here all their lives. We have several animal adoption centers and I have even volunteered at Wag Feast events and the Humane Society. I even foster my first dog who soon became part of my family. We have Community Events for everyone. Our local YMCA serves children with daycare, camps and free swimming classes for all third grade classes in our County. We also have a Museums, a Senior Center where the Seniors can exercise, do crafts, play cards, eat lunch or take trips. Our Vineyards are beautiful and several folks use them for Weddings.
Review Albemarle
I love living in this small town Community. We have a State Park to hike, lakes for swimming, fishing and boating and so many more opportunities, like hunting, a Theater, Community College, Vineyards and a Golf Course. I love riding horses and we have the Fork Stables where the Olympic Equestrian Team attends for time trails and I volunteer. We have all four seasons which is nice and I enjoy experiencing each one. Our local School System is having issues regarding need for academic growth and no new facilities. We recently had new Stores open for shopping and I'm so excited. I no longer have to go out of County to shop some of my favorite Stores. If I had to live anywhere, I would chose my home town again.
Albemarle is a small town that little know very much about. It's a place where everyone is family and gossip spreads pretty quick. It's rare you see a new face and things such as fairs, parades, or even Chic-Fil-A amuses us dearly. Although it's fairly small, it's a home.
