Albemarle County Reviews
I am currently a second year student at albemarle high school and been living here since I was around seven. I've always had pretty nice neighbors and good friends around me. Everything is always lively and full. there are not many place for teens nor children 10-13 to really go to, to have fun and hangout.
Albemarle County is just such a beautiful place to live with the blue ridge mountains. You feel like you're in the country without being far from the city of Charlottesville. It's great for people who love nature or being surrounded by trees. The weather is moderate; we don't worry about hurricanes, tornadoes, or earthquakes, just the humid heat of the summer. The schools here are the top rated especially Western Albemarle High School. Overall, a great place to live.
Humble college town, so at times there is little to do (only one small, one-story mall) but with open shopping centers like Stonefield. Good community, great food (Bodos bagels!!), Downtown and Carter's Mountain are the best places. Historical, you can see Monticello. A good blend of demographics-- not as Southern and conservative as Fluvanna but also not as liberal as a city or NOVA. Optimal location in Central VA due to relative proximity to Richmond and DC. Great schools, scenery.
