Why Orange County, Va is perfect for ex New Yorkers

There is an ever-growing number of people moving out of New York and trading their previous lifestyle for something different. Luckily, there are so many cities, towns, and counties that can provide you with everything you want your future neighborhood to have. For instance, Orange County, VA is perfect for ex-New Yorkers for many reasons we will try to analyze in this article.

A little bit about Orange County

Orange County is a part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. With over 3 million inhabitants, it is the third-most populous county in the state of California. The average annual temperature of 20 degrees Celsius makes the county very pleasant for living. Among other things, this is the reason why some Canadians decide to buy properties in Virginia. Orange County takes pride in its educational and sports opportunities. At the same time, the county is home to many start-ups and overall successful companies, which means that the economy is strong too.

Orange County, Va offers suburban lifestyle while having 3 million citizens

Ex New Yorkers move to Orange County for the convenience of suburban living

Although it is a densely populated area, Orange County is mostly suburban. Many New Yorkers opt for living in houses instead of apartments when they move to this area. Who can blame them? When they get tired of everything that the “concrete jungle” has in store for them, they opt for leaving NY for good and trading it for the new lifestyle that they can have here. Some of the benefits of living in Orange County in comparison to NYC in terms of housing include:

  • not having to spend a fortune on rent in NYC – it is not a secret that New York City is one of the most expensive cities in the World for renting a place; Of course, not all NYC counties and neighborhoods cost the same, but still, they are mostly overpriced.
  • being able to afford some home features and amenities that you could only dream of in NYC. To be honest, a house with a nice garden, a water view, or a swimming pool in your backyard comes with a certain price tag in Orange County too, but the numbers are more realistic than in NYC.
  • being able to earn some money on renting a vacation home you can buy in Virginia – A vacation home in Orange County can be a great place for you to relax and earn some extra cash too. It turns out that in many areas, the weekly fee you can get for renting out is greater than the monthly mortgage payment.

The slower pace of life is definitely a plus, but you might need to learn some new skills

After moving from New York City to Orange County, you will have more time for yourself since you won’t be spending it in NYC traffic. On the other hand, a suburban lifestyle might require you to have a driver’s license that you probably didn’t need in NYC.

You might need to learn how to drive after moving from NYC

Work/life balance is so much better in rural areas

Just like we have already mentioned, moving to a suburban or even rural area from an urban one such as NYC can save you a lot of stress in your daily life. Commuting to work might be a little time-consuming if you are used to living and working in the same part of the city, but the benefits of space and money are there to compensate for the loss. In fact, many companies follow the trend of moving their headquarters and offices outside the city centers for these particular reasons. They are able to choose much better spaces within their budget, plus they get overall better working conditions for their employees.

Orange County, VA can be perfect for ex New Yorkers with families

Whatever you crave for – NYC has it. Be that business, culture, entertainment, or anything else, you will be able to find it in New York. However, the Big Apple might not be an ideal place for raising a family. That is exactly why people choose to leave it at a certain period of their lives when they decide to start a family.

We all agree that raising children is easier and often healthier in smaller places. Orange County, VA is specific since it has a vast population, yet its citizens enjoy the privileges of living in smaller communities.

For instance, the crime rate is much lower than in NYC or some other bigger cities. This is usually the first factor people consider when moving to a new town or city with their families.

After that, there is the healthcare factor. Orange County has a great network of hospitals and clinics. Here are some of those:

  • Mary Washington Healthcare/Mary Washington Hospital, Fredericksburg
  • UVA – Culpeper Regional Hospital, Culpeper
  • University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville
  • Martha Jefferson Hospital, Charlottesville

Education in Orange County, VA is also something that can attract ex New Yorkers

Moving professionals such as dynamicmoversnyc.com noticed that there are many people who choose Orange County for their relocation from bigger cities in search of education. Whether they are the ones who plan to continue their schooling, or they would like their children to have better educational opportunities, here they can choose from a variety of public and private schools, colleges, and universities.

Education is one of the reasons why Orange County, Va is perfect for ex New Yorkers

Recreational activities in Orange County

The parks in Orange County might not be as impressive as Central Park in NYC, but they do offer a variety of recreational to entertainment activities. From various sports that can be practiced here to cultural events that are organized all-year-round, there is always something to do in Orange County, Virginia.

This is also a very famous surfing destination! The long sandy beaches will help you relax and forget about your previous hectic life in NYC. So, whatever your reason might be for moving to Orange County, VA, you can rest assured that you will find everything you need in your new hometown.
