OT relocation to VA
This is OT, but I thought I'd check here for some info. We're relocating to SW VA for my husband's job. We'll be househunting for a place within a reasonable drive of the Wytheville area. We lived in that part of the world for a couple of years, 5 years ago, but not long enough to become really familiar with surrounding communities. I was still unpacking when we left, LOL.
The area I'm leaving is upscale, arty, with a classic small New England town feeling. Is there a town in the area that has a historic atmosphere and some cultural amenities? We're not big on nightlife and I'm a homebody, preferring to spend time with my gardens and dogs, but a place that is devoid of any "atmosphere" may be a bit depressing.
We're considering Wytheville and Christiansburg, but I'm open to suggestions for other places.
