The Commonwealth of Virginia is a southern state with a highly diverse population. The inhabitants are largely technocrats, rednecks and otakus, or some combination thereof. Northern Virginia tends to identify more with DC than the Commonwealth as it is the home of the civil servants and bureaucrats that run the federal government. Although distinct regions have their own identities, people of all types listed above can be found all over the State.

The Commonwealth was an important player in national politics for the first 100 years of the USA’s existence, being the birthplace of several notable Presidents and other national leaders. In the Civil War, Virginia joined the Confederacy and became the site of many of the war’s most important battles and the Confederate capital.

Today, Virginia is part of the South that is rising again, at least in terms of high-tech industry.
What would Stonewall Jackson think of Inuyasha? Only someone in Virginia would conceive of such a question. Scary. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

Pronounced the exact same as the state. Ginny for short.
Virginia is a great person who is always willing to help. Usually a Blonde bombshell. Friendly, smart and so much more, she really has everything going for her.
Hello Virginia..WOW, your smart, blonde and friedly! What a great combination!

Down where the South begins !
Virginia is for The FFVs- the true bastillion of the blue blooded Southern Artiocracy. Virginia is full of gracious plantation homes, home to Robert E. Lee, spoonbread, sweet tea, Brunswick Stew, and Country Music Legend Patsy Cline and wonderful singer-songwriter Meade Skelton. Many Yankees and tranplants who are jealous of this heritage out of ignorance will put old Virginia down. And even try to change our glorious state song. But we shall pervail !

Home to great history, beautiful scenery, southern hospitality--yes, isn't it hard to imagine people actually being friendly and polite !--and smoking hot southern women.
Look at that handsome southern gentleman and that gorgeous southern belle, I bet they're from Virginia.

First state with more history than any other state in the U.S. and unfortunatly some of the oldest cities which are broken down and constantly being constructed on IE. Richmond, and Norfolk.

Also unfortunatly, Richmond and DC rival each other as being on top 10 most dangerous US cities as well as murder capitol at some point with Norfolk being on there too, and don't move to VA Beach unless you like gangs.

Overall though, the state has a wave of history to it and many historical battle museums. Great for taking a class field trip to.
What's the best state to visit historic america? VIRGINIA!!!

virginia's got a bit of everything for everyone. For the younger population, city night life and malls galore if you look in the right place, and for them older rich republicans, horse farms and quiet country stretches of land in the western part. Personally I would stick to the southeast coast (Va. Beach/Hampton Roads) or NoVa (Fairfax County, Springfield, DC influence) where living for young adults is way more interesting than the corridor of nothingness I endure in the shen. valley.

It's not THAT south here. Especially in the diverse populations inhabiting the previously mentioned places. But some places where you could steer clear of: Southwestern (coal country, unless you like mountain after mountains of it),and south central (no idea what goes on down near danville). Other than those, you could settledown easy in places like charlottesville (voted best place to live in the country a few years ago by better homes and gardens) or williamsburg, alexandria, fairfax. Nice places. Just make sure to hang around the right crowd for you.
Virginia: a real mix of everything. I guess it's for lovers, so just look in the right place for it...
