Just a truly horrible place to live. What you'll be doing is straining every brain cell you have to convince yourself that the stars you may have in your eyes over living "so close" to the nation's capital are worth more than enduring the ungodly traffic (you will learn to plan your entire life around the traffic, and it really isn't possible any more to find a reliable time of the day, or week, or month or year that the traffic isn't simply horrific), the huge population of surly, non-English-speaking non-citizens, and the ridiculously high cost of living in this, arguably the country's foremost example of grotesque urban sprawl and everything that means. It was once a nice place to live. It isn't any more, and it's hard to imagine that it ever will be again. Choose instead one of the thousands of still lovely, "undiscovered" communities throughout the heartland of this coutnry, where the quality of life you seek is still easy to find.

It is a great place to live. There is something here for everyone! Where are you coming from? If you have children the schools are very good. If you like sports you got it! If you like golf, tennis, etc is here! Hope this helps....and if you need a great real estate agent.....give me a call.

I have lived in a few states and lived here two different times. It is wonderful!

Northern Virginia is fantastic mix of Suburbs and Urban environments. There is something for everyone and every kind of living imaginable! The government contracting and technology sectors have provided a stable economic environment as well as created 3 of the wealthiest counties in the United States: Loudoun, Fairfax and Arlington Counties.

Outdoor actives including Lakes, Hiking, jogging and outdoor entertainment in areas like Reston Town Center and Fairfax Corner create a great community experience. Many of the subdivisions in Northern Virginia offer all inclusive living.

I have lived in Northern Virginia my entire life and would never consider living anywhere else!
