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’

Virginia is a nice small-town. They have everything you need to raise a good family. Library, Post Office, grocery stores, YMCA, good schools, excellent college, a variety of local and big-name stores, etc. More theater and arts would be amazing.
Very good area, nice schools, very beautiful lake, could use better roads, lots of different people.
