Living in a bubble

There are many nice attributes: a number of individually owned and really good (but pricey) restaurants; cultural offerings; good shopping; close proximity (20 miles) to all that Newport News offers, and only 1.5 hrs to Charlottesville.But there are very few major employers in town. So, if you aren't retired, your employment opportunities are very limited, and Richmond is a long commute (although people do it). Nice surrounding countryside, although sprawl is rapidly occurring. I-64 suffers accidents and back-ups regularly. There is very little diversity in this area, which makes it feel very, very southern. The population is generally well-educated and somewhat moneyed. We have found it to be a rather unfriendly, cold, and gossipy place, and the sense is that unless you have resided here for 20+ years, you are viewed suspiciously. If you want to test out the place, stop in the local Trader Joe's. While their employees are wonderful, the shoppers give you a true sense of personalities around here (unfriendly and self-involved), and people here beat the hell out of your car in public parking lots and take off. Housing is not cheap, and the low crime rate is great, but I'd prefer to take my chances and live in a higher crime area outside of the bubble with a more diverse, friendly population not carrying around with them such a sense of entitlement.
