Montgomery county is a great place to live and is filled with a lot of great shops. It is also home to Virginia Tech University and provides college town experience. Montgomery is also a great place to enjoy lots of outdoor activities and enjoy spending time with your family. The biggest thing I would like to see changed is the restrictions on permits and what you can and cant build on your land. I am a firm believer in its your land and you should be able to do what ever you want on it. Montgomery county is one of the more strict counties on permit laws.

Montgomery County has so many wonderful things here and also wonderful people. This county has some of the most friendly, kind and caring people as residents. It has also grew to be a fairly big town with all the new stores and new restaurants. If I were to change anything in Montgomery County I would change the amount of housing. It has really increased in the price to rent and buy a home.
In the area of Christiansburg, Virginia, there are several unique areas to visit. One could take a walk on the Blue Ridge Parkway to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the trees and mountains. Another place to visit is the downtown area, where one could find many unique shops and restaurants. The drive-in theater is a perfect place to go during the summer for an outdoor movie experience. Every resident in the Christiansburg area welcome all with a kind smile and a sweet southern accent. The ones who live here make others feel at home and makes southern hospitality a very real saying. I grew up in this area of Virginia, so I can truly say that I love it here. I would move, however, only to make a name for myself, not due to the atmosphere of the general area. For the future of Christiansburg, I can see that it will be a successful place for people to live in order to have a sense of home and calmness.
