Don’t go to VA if you want nice people - lived there long enough to know that no one smiles, you must learn to drive with no fear and much assertion, and road rage is triggered by nothing (watched a guy get pummeled with a bat when I was around 7). Highways in VA are like nothing else.
Some places I like:
Orlando Florida is an awesome city. Tampa is the pits, but Orlando is great. It is a beautiful city, a lot to do, very clean and open, people are nice, only an hour or so drive to Clearwater beach. I was surprised at how great it is the first time I went. Definitely love Orlando.
Boulder or Buena Vista Colorado, if you like the beauty of the outdoors. Denver has a lot to do, but I don’t particularly like staying there. Weather is nice and stable, predictable, and the mountains are absolutely beautiful.
New York Niagara. If you can stand the tourist, it is a nice place. A lot to do there, casinos, some really crazy stuff. Weather can be crazy sometimes, but the Falls are great.
Just some suggestions, good luck wherever you choose!
Agreed, the Urban areas and highways suck here. The small towns are great, especially in the Shenandoah area, but you’d probably get bored in a small town.
Blacksburg was great when my wife went to VT. Nice outdoor activity close by and the big college thing.[/quote]
Yeah, the highlands area is beautiful too. Problem with blacksburg is that like half the population is the University. I get tired of looking at college kids everywhere I go. But if you are a college kid it’d be ok I guess.
