The people in Virginia are friendly, but busy and living near the capital of the US, Washington D.C makes everyone work hard to live out their American dream. Virginia is a warm and green state with both the city and rural areas to explore.

Moa, au pair from Sweden
“People don’t tell you how green Virginia actually is. It is absolutely beautiful here. I thought spring was pretty, but as the year went on it just got prettier with every season! It is also very close to the capital of the United States, Washington D.C. There are tons of free concerts, museum, cool events, a lot of races like Ugly Sweater Run. Living in VA, you are welcomed to a great group of au pairs, we meet several times a week!”
Louisa, au pair from Denmark
“Virginia is soooo beautiful! Especially when the fall comes. I live in Charlottesville which is a very cool place to live. You can always find something to do: drink coffee at one of the great coffee shops, go to the movies, go out in the evening—there are so many amazing places to eat here! Go hiking, go to the park, go shopping. Experience a football, basketball or other matches at UVA. Meet up with some of the students or au pairs. Virginia is great! You always have something to look forward to!”
