Orange, Virginia is a small town near Charlottesville. In orange most non commuting job opportunities are chain restaurants or small businesses. Many people do commute to Stafford, Washington D.C., and Charlottseville however you will most likely have over an hour commute. The closest department store is 30 minutes away in Culpeper, Virginia. Schools are limited here to 1 high school. Overall Orange is a nice place to live if you are looking for a quiet small town life.

So far my experience in Orange has been diffrent from what i've been used to. Im originally from NY and i had to accept the fact that there is no public transportation. There are no side walks and no street lighting at night time. The streets are welk kept and police presence is remarkable. I feel extremely safe however you still have to be careful of the wildlife and nature for instance i saw a bear at 5am in the morning crossing the road and heading back into the woods. The teachers at my school are extremely helpful and my over all experience has been good.
I would like to see more outside events for families and a variety of restaurants. It would be nice to have a home cooked family owned place to eat and even another grocery shopping choice. It would also be nice to have a dog park or trails to walk your pets on in designated areas. Other than a few minor wishes Orange is a safe and nice place to live and raise your family.
