Merrifield, VA: Perfect Living in a Perfect Setting

Merrifield, VA is one of those places you just don't find any more. Breathtaking, unspoiled nature and scenery, wonderful people everywhere you go, great schools, easy-to-find housing, a healthy job market, and practically no crime. We have been living in Merrifield for 12 years now and we love it more with each passing year. This is the place my wife and I have decided we want to live in and grow old together, play with our grandchildren here, and just be happy and thankful every day.

This is one of the best areas in Virginia for having fun. We have the Muse Paintbar in nearby Fairfax, where you can enjoy food, drink, and create some art of your own. There's Penguin Paddling for kayaking, paddleboarding, and rafting fun. We have the annual Taste of Merrifield festival, and the amusing Segs in the City Segway tours. There are bigger cities with more things to do, but you honestly won't find a nicer place to live than Merrifield.
