The area in and around Stafford is great. Although Stafford does not have a central downtown or location like Fredericksburg or D.C., most people would agree the central point of activity is Stafford Market Place and the shops along 610. Stafford Market Place has a Lowes, Target, Chipotle, Shoppers, Panera, Buffalo Wild Wings, Best Buy, Sprint Store, Moes, T J Max, Bed Bath and Beyond, Ross, and Armed Forces Career Center to name a few. Along 610 are plenty of stores and restaurants from Chick fil A to Sweet Frog. Safe to say there is a little bit of everything for people here. While the quality is not always great, you can get what you want for the most part.
