I moved here recently(within the last two years), and I have loved it. The neighbors are nice enough, but I also live in a fairly secluded area, so your mileage may vary if your neighbors are closer. The schools are great, stores are relatively close, and you can always find a decent slice of pizza. I wish they would shovel during the winter! Throwing sand(not salt) down and it takes about 2 days for the plows to come around. Means that having an AWD truck is pretty much a pre-requisite to living here. All in all, a nice place.

I absolutely loved living in Yorktown Va. You get all 4 seasons here and it is absolutely beautiful! Yorktown is full of battlegrounds and surrounded with rich history. Everything you could want to do is within a coupe hours drive, from mountains to beaches. Yorktown is family friendly with plenty to do, safe neighborhoods and great public schools.
Yorktown is a very small and cute suburban area. There are a lot of mom and pop restaurants and attractions. There is a quaint beach with cute shops all around. There's great food, attractions, and fun! I have lived here my entire life and wouldn't move unless I had to.
