Isle of Wight County is a great county that holds a lot of history for families to enjoy. Isle of Wight county is comprised of different towns such as Smithfield, Carrollton, Windsor, etc. There are lots of farmland in Isle of Wight County, and many small, locally-owned businesses. However, there are not as many schools around, but their systems are great. The environment is quite rural--almost suburban in the more populated towns such as Smithfield and Carrollton.

The people in this county are amazing, warm hearted individuals. Full of local farmers and blue collar people!
I have loved living in Isle of Wight County. It has a very family oriented feel to it. Everyone is like an extended neighbor, everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand.
