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.

We have lived in the City of Falls Church for many years. I attended the schools in the city of Falls Church which are excellent. It is embodied by a great community of people and families. It always seems as though all of the residents are willing to help anyone at anytime. So many places to walk safely to and beautiful parks to enjoy! Really great restaurants to enjoy as well.
West Falls Church is an excellent place to live in overall. There are lots of grocery stores and restaurants nears neighborhoods, and there aren't any cars so it's a rather quiet area. However, one thing I dislike about West Falls Church is the transportation. Event though there are lots of buses to go to different areas from the metro station, it's inconvenient for people that live between McLean and Falls Church to take the bus in the metro because they have to walk a very long distance to the station.
