I've grown up in the Northern Virginia area almost all my life and I've seen it grown tremendously. It's a great place; we have great schools, lots of things to do around here, right next to Washington D.C., everything is in close proximity, it's very safe. I used to hate living here, until I got my license and could finally explore the area! We have One Loudoun, Brambleton, Tyson Corner mall, and Reston Town Center. We're also getting the metro out here soon! If that's not so much your speed we also have more rural areas near us, about a 30 minute drive from Ashburn.

Ashburn is a growing community. There is an endless list of things to do. In Ashburn, new restaurants, grocery stores, and family-friendly activities are constantly coming into light. There are always fun community events for everyone to enjoy!
Although Ashburn is not the most diverse neighborhood just yet, it is full of fun activities to do, great schools, good opportunities to volunteer and help around the community, and wonderful people. It's close enough to many historical sites (Kings Dominion, Gettysburg, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Richmond, Busch Gardens, etc.) that a whole new day of fun is a quick hour or so's drive away!
