Galax, VA


Been Here 8 Years and Not - 10/26/2019
We moved here 8 years ago from Ohio and love it. We find the people very friendly, the climate nice, and the mountains beautiful. It isn't for everyone as there isn't a large and fancy mall nearby for those who like to shop. However, you can find everything you need to live and can order anything unusual on-line which we did anyhow while we were in a more metro area in Ohio. The opportunity for outdoor recreational activities abound with the New River Trail for biking, the Highlands and Jefferson National forest for hiking, the Blue Ridge Parkway for scenery, and the New River for fishing and kayaking. When we have a beautiful view while biking we are amazed that we live in such a place. If you like bluegrass or old-time music, this is the place to be. Everyday of the week, we can find place nearby that has a music jam where you can go and play with other like-minded musicians or listen. There is still plenty of unique music here that was born right in the area with bands on weekends at the Rex Theater . There is a small arts council in town that has a number of smaller functions but if you want to see a major orchestra or such, you will have to drive to a larger city. We feel very safe here and never had any issues. People seem to look out for each other and we have made more good friend here than we had previously. There are not a lot of manufacturing jobs here and I sure would like to see that change for the younger folks starting out. In any case, we are very glad we ended up here in Galax!

Not a good place

We have had the opposite experience. We moved here from Ohio and love it. We find the people very friendly and kind. In fact, we do a lot of walking and had to get used to waving at every car the passed. They often wave even when two cars are driving past one another car on a side road. We forget when we leave Galax, and whenever we say hello to someone or wave we never get a response and have to remind ourselves " we're not in Galax anymore". The weather is much nicer and the mountains are beautiful. We feel safe here. It isn't fair to blame an area for someone that lived here or something that happened 100 years ago. Good luck trying to find a place where everyone has the same and shares like political views as yourself regardless of what they are. We have gotten the comment that we don't sound like we are from here but it is because they want to start a conversation and are ALWAYS friendly.
