Thanks!

Can you pinpoint a little? North of Harrisonburg? Charlottesville? Winchester is a nice area. Far enough from NOVA to escape the worse traffic/crime etc but close enough to access Dulles/DC etc. Knowing what you're looking for would help.

I'm actually looking at all three areas. I do like the Winchester area, but looking for what direction to look (where the new growth is headed). For instance, in Winchester should I look on the north west side, etc., thanks

Most of the growth is occurring to the south along the US 522 corridor (Front Royal is sprawling northward along the same route).

Another poster in this forum suggested Woodstock, VA to someone investigating Winchester. I wasn't familiar with Woodstock so I did a little research:

Woodstock, VA - Official Website

In my opinion, it looks like a great place to retire and not too far from Winchester amenities.

When I read the title, thought you were asking about West Virginia and wondered why it was here.
