Lynchburg doesnt really have suburbs.....
Try Appomattox. I did a search with your criteria for that area:

Things are very conservative, curch is a big part of peoples lives and this is also confederaf flag waiving/NASRAR watching teritory. But then this is central Virginia. I have found the schools to be quite good.

Hi:
An additional question---I am retired military, over 65. I can use Medicare/Tricare, BUT, are primary care doctors in the Lynchburg area taking new patients? Thanks for any current info you can provide.
MM

I certainly would say L has suburbs in Forest, Bedford, Rustburg, Madison Heights, etc. For under $200K you should get a nice place with 3/2.

Not trying to be difficult (really I am not, promise), to my understanding a suburb is a residential area outside a large city, usually associated with detached single-family homes and the term “commuter towns”.

Lynchburg is not really a large city by any means. However you can a.) live outside Lynchburg and B.) there are areas such as Wyndhurst that definitely has more of a suburban feel then the standard Lynchburg feel.

Forest and Madison Heights are more just another part or Lynchburg and Rustburg is close enough one could commute.
…Bedford is everything between Lynchburg and Roanoke :- )

Anyhow, I agree that “powder” could find what he was looking for in the in and just outside Lynchburg.

Even smaller cities have suburbs. Roanoke has Salem, etc, C'Ville has Crozet and others. The L metro area is given as nearly 250,000 of which only 70,000 live in the city. The rest are in the suburbs according to the US Census.

OK!
When I hear the term suburb I think of something very different then what places like Rustburg ha sto offer. But then that is just me. Thanks for clearing up the terminology.

Hey, I am new to this forum. My husband has been offered a job in Lynchburg. I am worried, to say the least about moving there. We visited one time, and every looked sooooo conservative...I was being stared at for having my nose pierced. Has the town seen any progression over the years? I am a young mother, an artist, and work as a massage therapist. I am scared there will be absolutely nothing for me to do or anybody to befriend. I saw you mention the conservative/religious overtones of Lynchburg...Will I be miserable in this town?

Hi I just wanted to say to the Lynchburg residents.. I was out there for business a few weeks ago, and I love your City. The people are very nice there. I went to a restaurant near the railroad tracks, nearby some old paper mill, and it was great.

Having a pierced nose is progressive? I think it's just a very silly and now passe fad. I live in Seattle and that whole thing is so 90's. You don't see that stuff around much anymore here.

Stop by the Bull Branch downtown and you can meet the more liberal arty side of Lynchburg. It's a growing group but not dominant for sure.
