Annandale has amazing food and culture. I love how culturally diverse it is! There are several asian supermarkets in the area. There is a plethora of really yummy Korean restaurants to access (lots of places to get great Korean BBQ). Annandale always seems to get the coolest new restaurants too (Kung Foo Tea, The Block). I There are lots of parks near by and lots of families !
Review Annandale
The people are nice, a majority of Northern Virginia is welcoming. There are certain areas of the state that are made up communities that are on the lower half of the middle class, yet a majority seem to belong to upper middle-class. The cities are well-developed, full of stores and several places that offer leisure activities.

Compared to other states that I have been to, I would definitely say that Virginia has 2 very different sides. Northern and Southern Virgina are quite different but together are able to offer a lot. This area overall is great, I see it developing furthermore.
Great, peaceful neighborhoods. Everything is close by, places such as restaurants, grocery stores, ect. Overall a safe environment although in smaller neighborhoods there have been reports in the past. Pet friendly.
