What Bert Has To Say About Winchester Metro Area


Winchester is a rising star in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. For years it has been a stable, prosperous agricultural center and light manufacturing point in the center of a large area of good farm and orchard land. Now, it is just close enough to the ever-expanding D.C. area to support those tolerant of a long commute, especially to the suburbs around Dulles Airport. It has also become a favorite for telecommuters or entrepreneurs needing a city just once in a while. The strategic location allows these individuals to also get to New York in 4 hours or just about any other major eastern city.
