Moving from a big city in California to a small town in Virginia was a very big change. The people in Carrollton are very welcoming and caring. It is a small town where this is one elementary, middle, and high school. So, with that being said, everyone knows everyone. Carrollton really is the homiest town I've ever lived in.

I have moved into this area within the past few years and I am absolutely in love with it. The mix of suburban and rural life is just the right balance. There is not a lot of crime or issues within the city. The citizens are very kind and respectful of one another. Although the community is very diverse, we blend well like a family.
I was raised in Carrollton, it is a fast growing community. Carrollton needs more stores for a better variety of options. It also need more schools because of its large population. Carrollton is a great and safe place to raise a family.
