Burke Reviews

I like living in Burke. It provides me with great schooling opportunities and it allows me to be close to D.C. so I can be an active member of this country. I only wish there was something more to do at night or over the weekend. I have to drive somewhere at least 20 minutes away for me to have a break from my schooling. Overall I love where I live, it is a great place for me to grow up and a great place for me to figure out who I am.
I love our neighborhood in Burke. I live in a SFH and the families around us have been here either since the houses were built or there are new families that have kids my kids ages. The school system here is wonderful and coming from Montgomery County, MD I love it much more here.
The local businesses in the area mostly consist of construction workers for homes, irrigation companies, and home repair services. I have had incredible experience with all three f these services, especially Reliable Sprinklers Inc. The reason I only rate the local business as "It's okay" is because there are not many home feeling mom-and-pop shops in the area. However, if you go to places such as Old Town Alexandria, or the City of Fairfax, there are many small candy stores, tea stores, and art studios that are excellent to attend. Additionally in Occoquan, Virginia, there are many small art galleries and sea food restaurants that are tremendously successful. In conclusion, the surrounding areas or springfield have great small business where as directly in springfield small business is average.
