Living Here is an Exceptional Experience
Beautiful scenery, outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities, museums, historical reenactments, and top healthcare and educational facilities are only some of the perks of living in Virginia's e-Region.
Adding to the mix of outdoor recreational activities such as golf, hiking, biking, fishing, festivals, fairs, and a variety of cultural and social activities is Spearhead Trails, a new ATV adventure network of trails under development throughout the region. One of the nation's best kept secrets, the Breaks Interstate Park, known as the Grand Canyon of the South and rated as one of the top 10 parks in the nation, is located along the region's Virginia-Kentucky border.
Other highlights are the Historic Crab Orchard Museum and Pioneer Park; nearby Bristol Motor Speedway; "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine," the official outdoor drama of Virginia; Natural Tunnel State Park; Wilderness Road State Park; and year round performances at renowned Barter Theatre, the State Theater of Virginia.
Historical driving trails wind through the region: The Crooked Road: Virginia's Heritage Music Trail with several venues in the e-Region; The Wilderness Road: Virginia's Heritage Migration Route that traces the footsteps of Daniel Boone; and the The Virginia Coal Heritage Trail, more than 300 miles of scenic byways providing the traveler with glimpses of unique coal mining towns that were formed more than a century ago.
The region also includes access to a quality network of hospitals, clinics and specialty health centers within the region and in close proximity.
Four colleges and universities are located within the region and residents have access to many other higher education facilities within a 125-mile radius.
