Great community! Very considerate and nice people everywhere. Not to busy, but is nearby places such as DC and Fairfax for easy accessibility to the city and job opportunities. I have recently finished my education at Chantilly High School and have made many memories at the school, the local shopping center, the local mall, and even the houses of my friends. My neighbors are all so nice and we often make small talk across the fences. Overall, I love the social community we have at Chantilly and the diversity we have of locations, restaurants, and people.

One of my favorite things about Chantilly is the numerous restaurants and businesses it has. There is always somewhere new to eat or shop around every corner! I'm also in love with the regional library! It always has a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere to it. The library is well kept. They have over 3000 books available for check out! There is a running book sell in the library that allows patrons to buy books, magazines, DVDs, and VHS tapes for affordable prices. They also host events for the community like Passport to Fun and their version of Comic Con.
Good, safe place with an exciting future. Beginning to expand and populate with many new developments. Nice neighborhoods, with new shops. More on the expensive side. The only concern may be overpopulation, as new housing developments are crazy and the schools are constantly being rezoned.
