It was a wonderful town to live in! I lived in Ashburn from a very young age up until my teenage years. I had a lot of friends growing up and all my neighbors were very friendly. The town itself started to become very developed in the year 2016, and there were more facilities and housing subdivisions added in making it a very crowded place to live. It has a city like feel to it with some traffic, though it is still a suburb. My school environment was typical. All my teachers cared about teaching their given subjects and truly provided valuable life lessons to our class along the way. Most fellow students were kind and friendly as well. As a member of the orchestra, Stone Hill Middle School's music department gave me the chance to grow as a musician. I really enjoyed my time in Ashburn, and I will always be grateful for all the adventures and opportunities provided to me.

Ashburn, Virginia is a great neighborhood for families. There are many local restaurants, shops, and outdoor activities for your enjoyment. The recreation facilities, schools, and town centers are very nice and modern. Ashburn is a great place to live and I highly recommend it!
Ashburn has trails and parks that complement the suburban lifestyle. The schools within the Ashburn area have high standards and are quite competitive. There are a few centers for recreational activities, that include many restaurants, shops, and movie theaters. There are many season activities put on by the community, though some are lacking due to a decrease in volunteers.

However, there is a lack of diversity and connection. The connection between neighbors varies from neighborhood to neighborhood. Schools have a lack of 'culture' and can feel empty, despite their overcrowded nature.

Additionally, there is a lot of new construction happening. The roads are able to support the new traffic, though it gets choked up in certain areas. Other than that, roads and parks are well maintained.
