My time spent living here in Martinsville, Virginia has been very welcoming and it feels just like home. When I first moved here from New Jersey, I expected a country welcome because of my initial thoughts about the South. Boy, was I surprised when I finally saw how quaint, yet wholesome a community like Martinsville is.
In order to fully appreciate the beauty of the wonderful city, you have to take a ride along Commonwealth Blvd. I recommend stopping by the Community Market while you're there, and it can be found right on Fayette Street. There you will find some of the freshest fruits and veggies grown by local farmers.
There is plenty to do here in the city limits, and the best part is that if you have to leave to find what you need, the city of Lynchburg, VA is just a short drive up US 29 North. I love the low home prices, and I've never felt safer living somewhere until I moved to Martinsville. I recommend a visit for anyone seeking a new place to call home, you won't be disappointed!
