The best part about living in West Falls Church, VA is the accessibility to everything including DC. I still have not discovered everything that my city has to offer. Overall, we have a lot of historic monuments, museums, and a great art scene.

Living in West Falls Church has its perks especially how diverse it is. I like to consider us a "melting pot" of different cultures that makes living here so interesting especially the variety of food, activities and daily conversations I have with strangers on the street.

The summers can be very hot and humid, but everything is air conditioned making it easy to enjoy what the city has to offer. The cost of living is relatively high as compared to what I am used to but we do get paid more than average which helps out immensely. We have a lot of places to shop, eat and several good schools depending on what area you live in.
