Waynesboro is a small town with a bad reputation... while it can be quaint and charming and it has a lovely location at the foot of beautiful Afton mountain, it is also home to a large mass of disgustingly unhealthy and obese people, as well as common place to find meth, crack and heroine dealers. Also, aside from a few successes, Waynesboro is where businesses and restaurants come to die. I can think of 25+ businesses or restaurants I've seen come and go in the 18 years I've lived here. The only thing that flies here is chain restaurant garbage. So yea, keep moving. Go to Staunton or Charlottesville.

Waynesboro has great potential and is working toward reaching it's full glory, but it's been a long process that has seemed drawn out and delayed. But overall, making good progress.
Small town with a lot of history. Really diverse considering its size and location. Beautiful area, great food, and awesome atmosphere.
