I live in Wytheville! I moved here from Northern VA and it is so nice here.

Slower pace, quiet, beautiful, peaceful, no traffic, no noise, everyone is so nice, friendly and will give you the shirt off their back.

Everyone waves to you whether they know you or not. There are great restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, a wal mart supercenter, etc. Just not so much that you are overwhelmed

And Christiansburg is only an hour away. It isn't very expensive to live here either.

Taxes are low, police dept is awesome, and there are jobs if you are willing to work.

If I wanted city life, I would have stayed in Northern VA!
