Grundy Reviews

3 reviews
Grundy is a picturesque, mountain town with beautiful scenery and friendly, helpful citizens. It's nestled in between mountains with wonderful fall colors this time of year. Only 30 minutes from Breaks Interstate Park with its panoramic overlooks and breath-takings views, Grundy is a perfect place for a family.

Overall, Grundy is a small town located in the heart of the Appalachian mountains of Virginia. There isn't much to do in such a small town with only a population of 1,000 by the 2011 census. Since the population is so small, it is hard to find a job in such a small area. Most jobs include minimum wage jobs. ($7.25/hr) However, the people that live here can be the nicest people on the planet. Family friendly and southern hospitality dominate the area.
overall very small. Its a very small town feel but very nice population. Its not too crowded and not to small.
