Emporia, Virginia. An emporium filled with wonders. Sorry, had to.

Don’t believe me? Just see what the locals have to say about it at LocalTalk. Emporia is known for being a commercial hub, tying it to the travel industry. Most importantly, it is mid-way between New York City anddddddddddddddddddd (drum roll please) DISNEY WORLD!!! I realize not everyone is as excited by this as I am, but humor me.

Fun For the Whole Family
There is a googolplex of reasons to rent an apartment in Emporia, but an outstanding one is that Emporia is among the most family-friendly cities in the United States. There are activities for all ages galore, and the Meherrin River Arts Council is always sure to spice things with their musical performance lineup. The city also has created its very own unique culture with events like the annual Virginia Pork Festival, where 15,000 people participate in serving and eating 20 tons of pork prepared in 30 different ways. The people of Emporia are such hams! Are you a biker? Emporia is home to the Great Peanut Tour, a festival that draws thousands of people from all over the US each year to watch, or take part in, a 13 to 125 mile bike route around the city, a parade, fireworks, car show, carnival, and craft fair.
We Don’t Need No Education.
Parents and the school district of Emporia tend to disagree with Pink Floyd on this one. Emporia works to ensure that your child receives the best education within the Greensville County Public School District (http://www.greensville.k12.va.us/education/components/scrapbook/default.php?sectionid=1). The small size of the district will allow your child to develop strong and lasting relationships with their teachers and peers. The state of Virginia is also known for its exceptional universities and colleges like College of William and Mary, St. Paul’s College and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
Don’t Bother Me, I’m Eating.
All this talk of family fun and school is making me hungry. How would you feel about having the best burger of all time? If that sounds like a good to you then try Five Guys Burgers and Fries at 916 W. Atlantic St. How ‘bout some authentic BBQ? Wilson’s BBQ and Grill at 769 Main St. is a meat-eaters dream…but don’t be afraid to order a salad here! Okay, so now that your thighs have officially turned on you, you can start thinking about other things, like planning your night!

How much should I expect to pay for utilities in Emporia each month, depending on the time of year?
Since Emporia has a climate that varies month by month, utilities will change from season to season. Naturally, heating will drive bills up in the winter, just as the use of air conditioning will in the summer months. On average, however, gas and electric should not exceed $280 per month for a family of five. The water bill should amount to about $30 a month.
Why should I move to Emporia?
With a population of about 6,000, Emporia is a city in Greensville County, Virginia. Located an hour and 20 minutes south of Richmond and an hour and 40 minutes west of Norfolk, Emporia is ideal for those seeking a laid-back, small-town lifestyle far from metropolitan entertainments. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the mountains to the west. In addition, compared to the rest of the country, the cost of living in Emporia is 11 percent lower than the US average, making it a good place for people on a budget.
Is Emporia pet friendly?
Emporia isn't terribly pet-friendly. Though it's home to a couple of city parks--Veterans Memorial Park and Meherrin River Park--it doesn't offer any off-leash dog areas. Fortunately, since the population density is fairly low, many residents have enough space in their yards for their pets to roam free. Some pets owners also enjoy taking their animals to nearby rivers and lakes.
