Richmond, VA? No surprise there. I bailed on CT three years ago to Chesterfield county, SW of Richmond. This city and the surrounding counties are BOOMING! Northern VA is full of transplants from the North and is pretty much destroyed. Bad traffic, bad attitudes, crime, illegals. They all escaped the states they ruined then do it again down here. Central and southern VA are still OK for a few more years or longer.
