Get To Know Harrisonburg: Links, Maps, and a Guide

When I first moved to Harrisonburg almost 5 years ago, it was confusing! I had moved from the West Coast and was used to roads being laid out like grids, I hadn’t lived in a college town as a “townie,” and I was still on the job hunt. It was difficult because I wasn’t used to it, but as I got to know the area, I came to like the windy roads, the college atmosphere, and eventually I found a job. If you are thinking of moving here, or are new to the area, fear not! We have provided you with a list of helpful links, maps, and a relocation guide of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. We hope you find these useful, and if you have suggestions for improvement, please let us know!
