The area itself of very safe and relatively calm and normal. There is a very low crime rate around here but there are some pretty sketchy areas that you might not want to walk around in at night. The housing market around Centreville and in Centreville is very expensive and for no reason at all. The area is incredibly diverse but it’s pretty tame when it comes to night life. Overall, Centreville isn’t great but it’s not the worst and has serious potential to get better in the following years!

I've lived in Centreville since 2013 and don't plan to move for a while. I love living here! The close proximity of grocery stores, shopping centers, movie theaters, restaurants, and more is just one of the many perks of living in Centreville.
Centreville is very diverse. Centreville is filled with many shop and restaurants. Authentic dishes ranging from Korean barbecue and Mexican cuisine make Centreville a good place to dine. There are also many places to go out and have fun; such as bowling and the movie theatre. Centreville also has many trails and parks to enjoy a nice day in nature. Unfortunately Centreville is close to I-66 which causes a lot of traffic in the evenings. On the bright side Centreville is located in Fairfax County. Fairfax County Public Schools is one of the best counties in the country, providing students with an excellent education.
