    Culpeper itself, is a wonderful town. The scenery here is one of the best that I've seen. I love the openness, the nature, and all the animals that reside here. I love seeing that large buck on the side of the road, or the three little cubs that I didn't stop to see because I knew there was a momma bear nearby. But the people of Culpeper are a whole different story. I'm a waitress in the middle of town, so I do get the best of the best around here. But the people that are so horrid and horrific really make you dislike Culpeper.

    Culpeper County is a small town where everyone knows everyone. A large amount of the community is very involved and it keeps everyone happy. In old town culpeper, there is always events and organizations holding programs. One thing I would change about culpeper is the night life. After 8:00 majority of the town is home. The only time anyone ever really comes out is when its the opening night for a show at the movie theater. By working in a local business in old town, it was very easy to get used to when business would be slow or pick up. For anyone who plans to move to culpeper, I suggest that they like to be social because of the fact that everyone knows each other.
    Overall, Culpeper is a great place to live. There a few certain things it lacks like more stores, and especially family recreation centers. Neighbor counties have recreation centers available, but Culpeper lacks in this area.
