Close to the city, with good transportation there and back with the nearby metro. Traffic is bad, but the town itself and amenities are good. Excellent education system, though highly competitive and stressful.

No vacant/abandoned properties, great community. Near DC, lots of attractions.
Many have different opinions, often confusing.
