Really Almost Heaven. - 1/2/2015
I have lived in the Eastern Panhandle area of WV for a little less than 3 years and I fell in love with the place. I have lived in urban areas all of my life, and I would never have imagined I could love the country so much. Yes, there is a lot of poverty here. There aren't many jobs. You will probably want to do most of your shopping, other than for food, on the internet.

On the other hand, DC is only 2 hours away with all the culture you could possibly want. People are increasingly able to work from home...if you have a portable job you can have the benefits of having an income and living very cheaply.

Physically speaking, it is a very beautiful state and property is very reasonable. With so many things available on the internet these days...from like minded friends, to entertainment, to virtually anything you may want to buy....living in WV does not have to mean deprivation. On the contrary, the low cost of living means you could travel more than Read More

Avoid West Virginia ! - 10/25/2014
Fact West Virginia
Among the states with highest illiteracy rates in USA
Among the state with the highest teen pregnancies in USA among unwed mothers
Among the states with highest rates of reported gonorrhea in USA

West Virginia is among the lowest rental rates and property values in USA for SUBSTANDARD HOUSING High taxes
Not unusual in 'good' neighborhoods to see farm equipment, sofas and junk in front yard, no deed restrictions, cables strung from telephone poles for television and internet service resemble spider webs in most areas The overall impression is of a decaying lower class island decades behind the rest of the country, downtown streets in state capitol are so void of people footsteps echo during the daytime
No cultural opportunities, Mountain Stages is the only broadcast from state, there is a pathetic display in State Capitol Building
No intellectual opportunities, state colleges have poor national academic ratingsRead More

WV is refreshingly tranquil, and close to hip & ha - 8/27/2012
Cities rich with art & culture in WV are Shepherdstown, Berkeley Springs,
Huntington, Charleston, and Morgantown, but I happily live in the Northern Panhandle of WV near Pittsburgh,Pennsyl.which is green, progressive, and rejuvenated for the 21st century, I'm pleased to say.
I am a native West Virginian with a Master's Degree and
teach college, in fact. So, tired and outdated stereotypes
of the Uneducated Hillbilly--please R.I.P.

Beautiful State but very low in quality of life. - 11/7/2010
About the only good things I can say about WV is that it is a beautiful state and that the people are friendly here but that's about it. The cost of living is relatively low compared to bigger metro areas is probably one more good thing. But the summers are hot and humid, it's a bad state for people with allergies, the infrastructure is not that great, shopping is horrible, there is no public trnsportation whatsoever, the local governments are corrupt, the politics is not progressive at all, there is no culture, there are not enough parks or things to do, and the people are uneducated for the most part. Wages are low. There are not many good job opportunities. Nice place to visit but you do no want to live Read More
