Oakton Virginia is an upscale, neighborly community with beautiful sights and a is perfect location close by to all things imaginable. With a quick 30 minute drive you can be in our nation's capitol, Washington D.C. For a 20 minute drive you can be in-- Arlington, Fairfax, Vienna, Great Falls, Centreville, Gainsville, Herndon, Sterling, Annandale, Loudoun county and many more. This makes for an easy, convenient, and beautiful drive wherever you go. My family has lived here my entire life and I was blessed with a joyful childhood growing up in Oakton, Virginia.

I love living in Oakton, Virginia. I have lived here for almost my entire life and it has been great. It is very diverse and is the perfect mix of urban and suburban with plenty of shopping malls and town centers around the Fairfax County area.
Even though Oakton is a busy place it's a great place to be around. Everything is close by sometimes walking distance depending where you live, Oakton is like the middle man it's near the majority of places. Even though I moved from Oakton to Herndon, Oakton will be my favorite town plus a have many memories.
