This is such a safe and nice location. Everyone that lives here is so friendly. There are plenty of job opportunities for everyone. Fairfax Station is a very diverse place to live in. This area is a highly populated area, which can be a good thing and a bad thing. There is traffic during rush hour, but if you plan your time wisely, then you should be good.
I’ve lived in Fairfax Station for the past 20 years after a cross country move from California. My neighborhood is super quiet & lush with greenery. Feel like living in the country but close to modern amenity. Neighbors know one another & friendly to each other. I raised my two children here; they went to great schools & now both graduated from college. It’s the perfect neighborhood to raise a family.
