West Falls Church is where I've lived most of my life. It's pretty good here. It's very diverse, and the people are nice enough. Like any area in NOVA, housing is relatively expensive. Plenty of nice parks and the schools are okay. Only 12 miles away from DC, so it's good for a commute.

My family migrated to the Northern Virginia area from South America when I was seven, I grew up in the Falls Church area. I went elementary school, middle school, high school, and now I'm attending college here. My daughter is going to the same schools, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I like that West Falls Church is a suburban city with lots of diversity as well as lots of recreational centers, shopping centers, grocery markets, etc. West Falls Church is very inviting and family friendly there are also great schools from Elementary to High available to their residents. I would love for West Falls Church to industrialize a little more.
