Woodbridge is not the worst town to live in. I've always kind of felt pretty meh about it, but if you can afford it it's pretty good. The public schools in the area don't have the best academics, but also not the worst. The food variety is pretty average with really only chinese, spanish and indian food being the most diverse. Woodbridge also has an insane number of salons and I just don't know why. The downtown area is expanding a bit and has more selections of food and beverage places, think a trendy fro-yo or coffee shop. Another good addition is the library and the services they do provide. However, with all these add-ons the whole area does not really stand out as amazing. It's pretty expensive and as I said before, the overall feeling to me is meh.

Expensive homes and property taxes for no reason. Boring Main Street, way too many auto body shops and used car dealerships and not enough trees. They keep building housing and bringing people in which only adds to the congestion on Main st and Amboy Ave. I own a home here and have been living in Woodbridge since 2005.
It is a nice place that includes both quiet neighborhoods and shopping areas. People are very friendly and overall, the area is diverse enough for all people to feel comfortable.
