Virginia is a town of aroud 10,000 people living there. Virginia has a college, high school, elementary school, and many daycares when it comes to education wise. The housing in Virginia is very affordable. There are many activities to do in Virginia as well such as hiking, skating, swimming, shopping, crafting, gyms, and music lessons. The part of town where I live is in a relatively safe neighbohood, the part to stay away from is the second avenue area. I would like to see that area become safer. Overall, Virginia is a great place to live and raise a family at and you begin to know everyone in your community after living in the town for a bit.

Virginia has been very accessible and the school system not as bad a some would believe. There are many services near by and, in certain areas, they are within walking distance.
Virginia is an average town. Small local business with some bigger ones, (target, Walmart, etc.) The town as a whole is sub par in my opinion. The roads aren’t very good in most parts of town, those could definitely use some fixing up. Some neighborhoods aren’t the safest and there are some ‘sketchy people’
