Why Dan River

Why choose to live, work and play in the Dan River Region? The better question is, why not? Nestled in the beautiful piedmont region of Virginia and North Carolina, we're only hours away from the mountains and the ocean. We're large enough to see our downtowns growing and developing while also offering entertainment and outdoor activities for the whole family. Do you want to make a difference where you live and be a part of a place that is reimagining its future? Living in a community our size offers opportunities for leadership and development that many larger cities can't provide.

See how we measure up and we invite you to come visit and see why the Dan River Region is the right choice for you.
