I love it, I've lived there my whole life. It's kind of like being secluded but still around a lot of things. 15 minutes in either direction is Woodbridge and Manassas/Gainesville which both have plenty of things to do. There are a lot of family friendly activities around the area. The schools are some of the best and newest in the county. I met a lot of good people and I have plenty of space to play with my siblings outside. It's a great place to live and I would recommend it to any family.

I enjoy the small business entrepreneurship. Getting to experience snow and hot summers all in one year. Being able to drive to the city quickly, but living in a rural area. Having zoos, waterparks, shopping, dining, and amusement parks all in a 45 minutes vicinity.
This area is great for if you want a job, and great schools and opportunities for people to further there education. I do believe this area will stay at the top and keep having great jobs and education opportunites.
