There being Mineral VA or Lake Anna, VA?
Bear in mind this is the country-we don't have city water (wel water) and sewage (most areas don't)no chain or upscale restaurants or bars you might be use to. There is lots of wildlife-no, not nightclubs-wild animals I'm speaking of.

It's very dark, no street lights-we like it that way.

We don't have much in the way of entertainment-no theaters, museums, artsy/fartsy places-we do have beautiful sunsets an moon risings. The sounds of the county fill the nights; the air smells clean.

If you're from the north or a big city and you've never been in the country, you'll love it or hate it-no happy medium!

There is a Dollar Store, a grocery store (of a sorts)a greasy spoon diner, a BBQ joint and an ice cream store too-all in Mineral. Oh and a VFW!
You'll find everything you need unlessrn you're high maintenance :)
Stay away from the Pet Store! YIKES!!
From WV? Might be over-developed here-hope you enjoy your visit!!
