West Alexandria Reviews

I love West Alexandria! I've lived here my whole life. The people are great, the community is great, everything is great. I love how peaceful and quiet it is in the country. TVS is a great school full of very talented kids. Just a great place to live. Also, it has the greatest restaurant ever, Buckeye Jakes! Also has an Ice Cream shop and a carry out. The buildings through the main strip of town could be redone though, as they make the town look run down. Overall, a perfect, quiet town to live in.

I've lived in West Alexandria for my entire life. To most, it isn't more than a truck stop with only one traffic light, but I always enjoyed growing up in such a small place. I feel safe enough to walk down the streets. Even though we may not know everyone in our town, the never ending support and love here is wonderful.
This area is very down to earth and the people are generally very friendly. Most people living around here are of average income.
