Its a very small, quiet town in a rural setting. Has a decent amount of food options for the size of the town. It does not have a drive-thru food option. Great area for outdoor activities.
I absolutely love living in this little community. No matter what you need you always have neighbors who are willing to help. Everyone calls you ma'am or sir and has the utmost respect for you. There are parks, places to camp, and great fishing on the James River. In the spring/summer we have one of the best farmers market around. It is a great place to get away from city life.
