I have lived in Warrenton my entire life. It has a small town atmosphere with a big town hospitality. There are lots of great restaurants and small town shops. The people are friendly and always willing to help their neighbor. There are many great churches of all denominations. Warrenton is within an hour of Washington, DC, Richmond, VA and just a few hours from North Carolina, West VIrginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Warrenton is a quaint, friendly town with nice local shops and restaurants. I enjoy having nice grocery stores as well as local farmers markets to shop at and stay healthy. Warrenton offers nice parks in the area to provide activity for their citizens. It is small and in close proximity to so many other bustling areas.
Warrenton is a small, hometown community that is growing every year. The area is on the edge of well-developed suburbs that are pouring businesses, families, and opportunities into the area. It maintains a country, small town feeling while being close enough to everything enjoyable.
