Crozet is great! I moved here three years ago. It’s a pretty small town, but Cville is just a short drive away. The restaurants get a little boring after awhile. That’s really my only issue, except for the lack of diversity. I go to the high school in Crozet and I would guess it is around 98% white. Crozet is also pretty liberal. Currently, we have Black Lives Matter protests every Wednesday and Saturday. But being in rural Virginia, there are definitely some more conservative people around. The farther out you drive, you might see some Trump flags or even confederate flags :( Crozet is definitely more progressive, but you have to be more aware of a variety of political beliefs. Overall, I love it though! It is a small town, but it really feels like a family.

I absolutely love Crozet. It is a small little town right outside Charlottesville. Charlottesville was voted the 2nd happiest town in the country, and a lot of that bleeds into Crozet. Everyone is super nice and loving. Every single person that walks past you will smile and wave to you. There are a enough little shops to satisfy any of your needs. Without exaggeration all of crozet is safe, you could walk anywhere you want at night without having to worry about your wellbeing. It is too quiet to spend your 20's and early 30's but it is a wonderful place to raise a family.
Crozet is a friendly and small community with a lot of small local businesses. There are a lot of families living here, and the schools are conveniently located in the community.
