Richmond is beautiful! Between the views of the James River, the city Skyline, and Belle Isle, there’s something around every corner. Richmond is big enough to give the city feel, but small enough to avoid major traffic. Richmond offers history, festivals, concerts, museums, sporting events, outdoor recreation, and more. If that’s not enough, Richmond is driving distance from the mountains, the beach, and Washington, DC.
The Blue Ridge Mountains and the Rivanna River make Charlottesville a hub for all things outdoor- hiking, kayaking, skiing, cycling. In 2014, the US National Bureau of Economic Research named Charlottesville the happiest city in America. Home of the University of Virginia, Charlottesville is full of history, but also has a great music scene, more restaurants than you can ever visit, a large farmer’s market, and a new brewery popping up every year.
Virginia Beach is known for having the longest pleasure beach in the world with its 35-mile coastline. Virginia Beach offers aquariums, art museums, golf courses, excellent fishing, and so much more. The city is located in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area which includes Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and of course, Virginia Beach.
Arlington offers easy Metro access to Washington, DC and all of its nightlife, museums, and restaurants, without having to deal with DC’s traffic. With 18 miles of paved trail along the Potomac River, the Mount Vernon Trail is great for a jog or bike ride. Rowers and sailors love the easy access to the river too! Old Town is Alexandria's charming historic district where you can visit shops housed in historic buildings alongside cobblestone streets. We can help you teach in Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, McLean, or DC area schools such as Burgundy Farm, Episcopal High School, or St. Stephen's & St. Agnes.
