Best Cities In Virginia


The Top Ten

1 Virginia Beach

There's lots of 7-Elevens there. In fact, they have 76 of them. - PerfectImpulseX

2 Richmond

Agreed! Richmond has much more impact on a national scale, it's historic and has economic importance. Not everything has to be about tourism and beaches.

Pretty nice place to live. Lots of historical sites, decent proximity to practically everything in VA, nice riverside activities, and if you include the greater Richmond area, pretty tranquil forests.

That's hilarious. Bad News ranks higher than the River City. There's no way NN is as influential as RVA. Same goes for the dirty little beach city.

6 Chesapeake
7 Roanoke

Raised in Roanoke, later had to move to Danville / Pittsylvania County area, living in Danville made me realize just how GREAT of a place the Roanoke Valley really is. If you live there now, trust me, Roanoke has much better restaurants, housing, neighborhoods, jobs, education opportunities including local schools, medical care, shopping, I could go on and on. DO NOT MOVE TO DANVILLE, greater chance of getting shot, stabbed, or robbed. If your travels include driving thru Danville, take the long way, go around.

8 Woodbridge

I have lived in Woodbridge for over 20 years. During that time it has transferred from a place where Mexican immigrants used ti stand/sit on the corner of Route 1 waiting for someone to drive by and offer them employment. Oer the past 10 years Woodbridge Route 1 has changed from trees to $300k-$500K townhouses and single family homes. Also new apartments and reised old apartments. According to the Washingtonian Magazine Woodbridge zipcode 22191 is a flourishing and great place to lie and raise children. I live in a senior complex in this zip code. The elementary schools are safe, blacks living in the area can be seen walking their dogs along major paths just like the other minorities and whites. Its makes you think, these people are giving up something to try to live somewhere where their children and family can be safe. I applaud them. I grew up in the 40s thru 70, in Portsmouth, Virginia. There was prejudice (black on black as well as white on black and white on white but little). ...more
