Broadlands Reviews

Broadlands is an incredible place to grow up. I have lived in Broadlands for 17 years couldn't imagine growing up in any other place. The schools are nationally ranked, the neighborhoods are beautiful, and location is perfect. Broadlands is located very close to attractions such as dozens of Vinyards, Dulles Airport, and beautiful shopping centers. Even after finishing college, I decided to come back to Broadlands because it's such an easy place to feel comfortable. My only complaint is the area is very populated which often means there is traffic.

Planned community with decent amenities. Walking trails are nice. Current growth has surrounded the area with big box data centers. You have to drive to get to anywhere for basic needs. Schools are crowded and budget cuts have been adding to people's stress. Speeding is a problem on the main 4 lane road that cuts through the community. Not many after school options for middle school age kids unless they are enrolled on some kind of activity. Lifestyle is pretty much the same in all the Ashburn area. Air traffic noise from Dulles Airport and the close by fire station has been getting worse.
There are restaurants of all types (cheap to very expensive) but none of them are open past 10, except for a few such as Buffalo wild wings and others. Plenty of American grill restaurants, a few italian restaurants, gourmet pizza restaurants, thai/chinese/japanese and even mongolian restaurants, a few Indian restaurants, so there's basically something for everybody. Even for those with expensive tastes, there are several Hibachi grills such as Otani in Broadlands, Benihana in Dulles, and Nagoya in Ashburn. My favorite restaurant is Sweet Water Tavern in dulles, where they serve their famous bottomless Ozzie rolls with sweet butter as the appetizer...mmm.... Few restaurant bars and almost no clubs which needs to change, and there are a few hookah lounges in the area as well. Overall if you want something specific (besides clubbing/dancing), Northern Virginia has it. For clubs you're gonna have to go to DC or Alexandria/Arlington for that. There are so many amazing restaurants in the Ashburn/Leesburg/Sterling/Fairfax/Reston area that when my family and I contemplate where to eat we always get in arguments because there is a ridiculous amount of choices in the area. So many that me and my dad decided to go around the area and do a "burger test" at all of the gourmet burger restaurants; which included Freddie's, Smashburger, Elevation Burger, and Five Guys.
