This town is beautiful, clean, quiet, friendly, and safe. It’s close enough to enjoy the jobs and fun that comes with big cities, beaches, and historic locations, but far enough to escape the hustle bustle if that’s not your scene. The Hampton Roads area is big for military since there are so many different branches and bases nearby. There are plenty of cute farmers markets, thrift shops, antique stores, bakeries, cafe’s, non-chain restaurants (as well as chain restaurants), a cute little theater, and so much more to enjoy in this town. I have never had a problem with crime or heard of any serial/major crimes being committed in this town and I’ve lived here since August of 2015. It is a small town surrounded by lots of forest and country if you want to be even more secluded. The town is growing slowly, but only enough to keep it interesting. Overall, I would say this is a great town to live.
