Review Aquia Harbour
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.
I feel very safe in this area, but there are a large number of people living in this area. Traffic is almost always a problem and gas prices are slightly higher than just a little further south.
Summer's here are hot as hell and humid, but that's really anywhere in Virginia. Fall is nice, generally warm until october when it starts to cool. Winter's are cold, but rarely below 0. Snow storms are frequent but usually happen post December. Count on at least one week off from school due to snow, but it is not uncommon to get more. Spring is cold until the beginning of May when it starts to warm up again.
