Alexandria West Reviews
I lived in the area for 18 yrs and as a working professional, I loved living in West Alexandria. The area is affordable, safe, and bordering Arlington and it's nightlife. The commute to DC is a maximum of 45 minutes tops during rush hour and 10 minutes during non-rush hour. Very important to those of us who commuted to the city on a daily basis. The area is walking distance (30 minute walk) to the Shirlington Village and Four Mile Run Park. Most of my neighbors where health conscious single working professionals and married couples with young children.
Alexandria is close to Dc which means traffic. During rush hour, the time to get to my house doubles from whenever I'm currently at. However, it has many stores like Dollar Tree, New Grant Mart, Wells Fargo, Sweet Frog and the best of all Eddy's Chicken. Ross, Marshall and Old Navy are 10 minutes away maximum which is great because I like shopping. I would like here again any time because many stores that I go to are nearby.
I live very close to I-395 and currently there are doing road work which is dangerous for anyone. That's my only concern in this area. The police is visible all the time which makes me realize they are watching out for this city.
