HARRISONBURG,Va. (WHSV)-- According to Movoto Real Estate, the Friendly City is number eight. The list was created based on nightlife, young residents, restaurants; to name a few requirements.

Charlottesville ranks first on the list, which is made up of ten cities. People in the Valley say downtown has really grown in the last 20 years.

"Local music, I mean entertainment, a variety of businesses, I mean you name it, it's a destination spot. I can't tell you how many people that I've grown up with in this area that have lived here, worked here, decided to move onto somewhere else, and go, I'm glad I came back because I missed that town," saod Thom Metroka, the Artful Dodger.

Metroka said varying nightlife downtown by including theme nights also helps.

Their Halloween party in July at the Artful Dodger draws people from out of town.
