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.
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.
Barely any crime whatsoever, so little crime that police have to get bored on the job. Only crimes committed are underage drinking/smoking, few counts of larceny here and there and peeping tom once in awhile. Every year there is one suicide/murder but it is swept under the rug quickly and life moves on, and I hear sirens maybe once every 3 or 4 months. Only things police are doing around here is busting high school parties and pulling people over for speeding. Absolutely perfect place to raise a family, great and safe schools, picturesque neighborhoods, friendly people, safe neighborhoods, many people who come to loudoun or ashburn to be specific describe it as "disney world" or "wonderland" as it is so safe and beautiful.
