Virginia is divided into 95 counties and 38 independent cities that govern the diverse regions of the state. Here's an overview of Virginia's county structure:

Northern Virginia near Washington D.C. contains rapidly growing suburban counties like Loudoun, Prince William, Stafford, Spotsylvania, and Fairfax. This region blends urban and rural areas.

The Hampton Roads region in southeastern Virginia is home to cities like Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Newport News, Hampton, and Portsmouth as well as counties like York, James City, and Isle of Wight. This area is focused around shipping and the military.

Central Virginia contains a mix of rural farmland, cities, and historic sites. Major counties include Albemarle, Chesterfield, Henrico, Hanover, and Goochland. This is where Charlottesville and Richmond are centered.

The Shenandoah Valley in western Virginia contains counties like Augusta, Rockingham, Page, and Rockbridge with mountain vistas, caverns, and small cities like Staunton, Harrisonburg, and Lexington.

Southwest Virginia is located in the Appalachian Mountains with rural counties that include Wise, Montgomery, Pulaski, and Bland counties. Agriculture, coal mining, and outdoor recreation drive the economy here.

The independent cities like Virginia Beach, Richmond, Norfolk, and Roanoke are not part of any county but function as self-contained entities. They work closely with surrounding counties to provide services.

So Virginia's counties and cities reflect the diversity of the state from the bustling D.C. suburbs to Appalachian mountains and the Atlantic coastline. Local governments tailor their services based on geography and community needs.
