It can be a doctor, a lawyer, a businessman, a military person, a stay at home parent - you’ll most likely find out if you ask. You can be sure a lot of your neighbors will be focused on developing their professional careers (think secret/top secret clearance), while the others will be adults who are starting their own families, and some are people who are retiring to be close to their families.
Things you’ll love
Proximity to countless business parks and international headquarters of leading companies is definitely something you’ll appreciate if you’re dreaming about a fast-growing career. What’s more, commuting, which once could be your nightmare, won’t be as big of a problem anymore, due to the silver line metro and HOV lanes! The same goes for things to do - we’re convinced boredom won’t hunt you down because of the proximity to parks, restaurants and shops.
Be warned …
There are a lot of planned communities here, which can sometimes mean "cookie cutter" homes. But with planned communities, comes planned amenities, which means parks, community schools, pools, tennis courts, and close proximity to the grocery store.
Being a center of professional life, this area provides you with countless transport possibilities - you won’t have any problem with finding a metro line to get wherever you need. The closeness of multiple transport hubs (metro, buses, HOV lanes) makes this neighborhood very popular, ideal for busy professionals heading back home after an exhausting day at work.
A lot of schools are within the planned communities, as they are building schools at a fast rate to keep up with demand. If you find a community with a school in the neighborhood, you may see your neighbors walking their kids to school each day. This makes it easy to be involved and know the kids your kids may go to school with.
