This is a complete list of towns in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States. An incorporated town in Virginia is the equivalent of a city in most other states, e.g. a municipality which is part of a county. Incorporated cities in Virginia are independent jurisdictions and separate from any county they are near or even within.

As of 2014, there are 191 incorporated towns,[1] some of which are as large as independent cities, but are not incorporated as cities and are therefore situated within a parent county or counties. Eight independent cities had 2010 populations of less than 10,000 with the smallest, Norton, having a population of only 3958.[2] In 2010, the largest towns were Blacksburg (with 42,620 people) and Leesburg (42,616). Four other towns also had populations of over 10,000 souls.[2] New towns may be incorporated but must have minimum population of 1,000. On July 1, 2013, Bedford became the 191st town in Virginia. For a complete list of independent cities, see List of cities in Virginia. For major unincorporated population centers, see List of unincorporated towns in Virginia.

This list is complete, do not add or remove any municipalities from this list unless that place has legally changed its incorporation.
