Lots of food options and recreational activities! Plenty of family friendly events are held multiple times throughout the year, and I've always felt comfortable and safe in my neighborhood. Traffic circles have been popping up the last couple of years which makes commute times much nicer. Only complaint is that the nightlife around here is pretty dead.

South Riding is a planned community in Loudoun County. It offers various services and amenities. Restaurants are near by and several grocery stores are easily accessible as well as other amenities. There is a need for more restaurants and entertainment in the area. The closest Movie theater is 10-15 minutes away. The community is clean and well kept. The pool and public areas are well maintained. The people are friendly. The schools are top rated and the students receive a strong education. As in every where in VA there is some traffic during rush hour but for the most part the roads are wide enough to accommodate the multitude.
Great town with great schools and low crime. All around an amazing place to live, although there isn't very much to do within the community. It's a commuter town at heart, but this is very much changing with the high amount of development going on. Since it's in Northern Virginia it's also not too far from many regional attractions.
