There are many benefits to living in western Virginia. Housing is affordable in urban settings and smaller communities. The climate is mild and we enjoy all four seasons. Outdoor activities include camping, biking, hiking, golfing, fishing and boating. Enjoy the 500 miles of shoreline at Smith Mountain Lake or the trails of the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway.
The region features award-winning schools, nationally ranked and internationally acclaimed colleges and universities. Natural beauty, exceptional amenities, and an unparallel quality of life is why the region has been coined “the best kept secret in the east.”
