Piney Mountain Reviews

2 reviews
I have lived here all my life. I have traveled to other cities and find that this is a great place to live in comparison to other cities/towns. We experience all 4 seasons in Charlottesville. Sometimes we experience 2 seasons in one week. This keeps things interesting. We have lots of great restaurants with all different types of foods. Our town is big but small! You don't know everyone but it doesn't feel like big city .Crime is low.

While there is crime in our area, I don't feel afraid or concerned to be out at night in our community.
