Hi everyone, family of four here, with kids of 6 and 9.
We are exploring a potential relocation from Massachusetts down to Virginia next year, as an alternative to the Charlotte area in NC. I work remotely

We are struggling pinning down a few areas to focus on.
Our priorities are:
- public schools (this is our top one, we really want the best possible)
- kids activities and family oriented communities
- rural/suburbs lifestyle, but well serviced (grocery stores, shopping areas, etc.)
- proximity to both sea and mountains

Our budget for an house is around $1M

I've done some google searches and Loudoun County seems to always pop at the very top of the list. Would you guys agree that this should be the area to focus on? If yes, what towns are best based on my criteria?
What other areas should I also be looking at?
Warm weather would certainly be a plus

Many thanks!

I would definitely look to Purcellville if this were me. Great area and schools but just far enough out from the sprawl of NOVA. Traffic wise it is still attached to NOVA but it is an entirely different area.
