Hi everyone, my family and I are looking to relocate to VA. We're in love w/ the Williamsburg area but are willing to consider other areas. I would greatly appreciate some advice on areas. Its been many years since my husband has made a cross country move, and I've never done one. So needless to say I am very naive to the process and how to do it. My husband is a chef by trade, and myself am a cashier/ hostess. We do have a 6 yr old, so school and safety is important. I would greatly appreciate any help. Thankyou so much.

I would give a big thumbs up to Williamsburg! I have lived here for 20 years and raised two children here. Great family town, great tourist destination with lots to do (deals for locals too), great place to retire, I work for the schools (WJCC Williamsburg-James City County Schools), which are great as well! AND a college town --- lots of cultural activities. The whole package. Housing can be a bit pricy in the James City County side, but the upper portion of York County has some affordable options and the schools are quite good there as well. Did I mention safe? Well, it is indeed a safe place with low crime too :-). Good luck and don't fear, we are quite friendly too. Southern hospitality at it's finest!
