Overall, Lake Ridge is better than most suburbs in Woodbridge. There is a local marina where you can go boating and hiking trails around the marina. There is a lot of sidewalks for walking along mains streets and some along side streets.
In Lake Ridge there are plenty of opportunities for eating out and grocery stores. There are small gyms and bakeries. However, there have been violent crimes.
Lake Ridge/Occoquan (exit 160 off 95S) is an ideal suburb for families. The schools in 22192 zipcode are highly accredited & host top IB programs. Your home purchasing dollars stretch further than being in Fairfax (literally 1 exit north & $100K plus tax more). Homeowners in Lake Ridge HOA enjoy 5 pools, tennis & basketball courts, tot lots and every shopping convenience within minutes. The marina, the golf course, the quaint shoppes in Occoquan are just a snapshot of the lux of Lake Ridge.
