2- Is it at all interracial-couple friendly?
3- What are good preschool programs (mornings/afternoons only) close by?
4- Are there any good salons for catering to black hair?-Indulging myself
5- What is your favourite thing about Belmont, and your least favourite thing about living there?

Thanks so much in advance!!

This 2010 NOT 1810. Why do people ask about "interracial couple" friendly? Is there an issue ANYWHERE in America these days?

My mom always said, "If you don't have anything nice to say...say nothing!" Spoken like someone who has never faced "issues" of any kind.

*Any* issue? Yeah, I'm sure in plenty of places. Getting a visit from the folks who like to burn religious symbols in your front lawn? Probably not as much as there used to be

If only! I think it isn't a big issue in major metropolitan areas but sometimes in more rural areas, especially the deep south, some people still take issue with it. The good news is that Northern Virginia seems good in that respect.

MamaVanTwee, How's the move coming along?

You are making a good investment by buying in Belmont. There are all kind of couples here. Children are safe when supervised. Sorry i don't know about hair salons.
