I am strongly thinking about moving to VA in like 6 months. I have never lived anywhere but Tampa, FL my whole life. I am not quite sure what part yet but I am already nervous and excited. Is there any advice or recommendations anyone can give me about the area?

This state varies drastically We have evrything from the country, to the city, mountains to the beach, all four seasons, and a very random grouping of people throughout.

What are you looking for or where were you thinking? I've been all over and might be able to help

If you move to Richmond and rent do not use River City Real Estate. That being said I now live in the west end in an apartment and it is decent although overpriced. I would like to move back into the fan but I want to buy a house, I love it there with all the old architecture and proximity to Maymont Park. We now have a Trader Joe's, Tom Leonard's and Whole Foods in the west end and of course Ellwood Thompson's natural food store in Carytown (in the fan).

I guess it depends on what you are looking for. I have lived on the east side of Richmond for most of my life. I was born in Tampa and my father still lives in Fla. There have been times I thought about moving away from Virginia, and possibly out of the country. Maybe I just need to get around more and meet more people. I feel that the area where I live is a little too conservative and traditional and not open to anything new. Most people think I'm nuts for being vegetarian. It seems that most people I see around here don't have much in common with me. Even local vegetarians and people who are into new thought or new age or whatever, I don't fit in there either. Also I work overnights so maybe I have been a little out of touch with whatever is going on around here now.

I used to live in Centreville, VA and it was really nice. The Fairfax county schools are awesome. It snows in the winter so that takes a bit of getting used to if you're from somewhere warm (I'm from San Diego). I couldn't take another winter so I had to move.

I can give you a vegetarian's perspective of Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania (lived around there for almost my whole life). Also, if you're looking into moving to Southwest Virginia, I went to college near Roanoke. Good luck!

Move to Fairfax county. The area around DC is fantastic.
