Staunton (pronounced Stanton, emphasis on first syllable, a sounds like ant) is a nice college town. I haven't lived there, but visited a couple of times. Pretty area.

Where are you coming from New Hampshire? I have family that lives in Chester (outside Manchester) and Rochester and Pelham.

You'll like Staunton. It will remind you of home. Nice rolling hills, close to skiing at Wintergreen. the leaves in the mountains (well, we call them mountains, lol) will turn colors. It is pretty up there. Sorry I can't help you more : (

Well yeah... I know it's a technicality, but when I think of a "college town" it's a town that kind of caters to it's university and has a large population of students and student hangouts etc....

Harrisonburg IS a college town. Staunton not so much IMO... Doesn't matter though...

Staunton's not really a college town, but it shares many traits with Charlottesville, with a growing arts/theatre scene and rejuvenated downtown.

Default Maybe mid point between Staunton and Charlottesville

If it were me, I would relocate somewhere between Staunton and Charlottesville and enjoy the mountains as well as pick and choose between the two towns. For shopping, Waynesboro is growing geometrically, but personally I like the areas just east of the mountains. Lots of small towns and absolutely beautiful vistas as well as reasonably good weather. If you're concerned about schooling, Albemarle county (places like Crozet) has good choices. Good luck, HB
