Tysons is an amazing urban city with a huge shopping mall, which is quite popular throughout Virginia. I like how I can get to either grocery or clothing store without using any type of transportation. However, if I ever need to get to DC or anywhere else, there is a metro station located right near us.

Tysons corner is great for every type of person. You can both enjoy city and suburb life being located 15 minutes outside of D.C and containing a few sky scrapers of its own. Crime rate is extremely low and the education system is one of the highest rated in the nation, feeding into TJ high school, the #1 high school in the U.S.
Tysons is the central business district of Northern Virginia with tons of entertainment and a development plan that is taking the location to new heights every day.
