VA or NC?

Jump to last reply

We need your thoughts and opinions! My husband and I are in our early 20's, and we'd like to buy a house soon.

I teach art in a little town right near the state line in Virginia. and I'd love to continue with that job. My husband is currently in a job search for a community-based organization for people with disabilities, looking everywhere we might move.

We love small towns close (enough) to cities. We want to live in a place that is family-friendly, with a strong sense of community. We are both fairly liberal but are respectful of other beliefs too. We'd also like kids in the future and we want to live somewhere where good schools are an option.

If we live in North Carolina, I can qualify for in-state tuition to get my Masters in Art Education online from East Carolina University. However, ECU also offers Out-Of-State
Tuition Remission scholarships.

The places we are considering are: Blacksburg/Christiansburg, VA (1 hour commute to my job) Mount Airy, NC (30 minute commute for me) and Wytheville, VA (30 minute commute)

Tell us what you think!
