2. Excellent Schools

Many young families shop for homes for sale in Fairfax, VA due to the excellent schools found in the Fairfax County Public Schools district. The Fairfax County Public School district has been ranked at the top of many categories including the largest school district by enrollment, high SAT scores (above the national and Virginia average scores), and high graduation rates.

There’s no doubt that if you’re looking to start a family and want your children to attend some exceptional schools, Fairfax, VA is the place to live. 

3. Walkability

While you’ll still need to use a car or public transportation to get around, when living in Fairfax, VA you won’t always need to. As a Washington, DC suburb, it offers tons of walkable areas and mixed-use developments that host everything you need. Fairfax County officials have even made efforts to increase the development of WalkUPs (aka walkable urban places) in the area to help boost the already thriving economy. Walkable cities not only save you on gas and the headache of traffic, but it’s great for the environment and our overall well-being too.

4. It’s “One of the Best Places to Live” Not Just in VA, But in the U.S.

From the youthful yet diverse population and family-friendly atmosphere to the historic scenery with many modern amenities and more, Fairfax County as a whole and the city of Fairfax, VA truly have all of the right ingredients for a high-quality life. While those ingredients might be different for some, 24/7 Wall St. decided to create their own index to measure the quality of life. Here’s what they had to say about Fairfax:

“Fairfax County, Virginia, located just outside of Washington D.C. and the city of Arlington, is one of the top 50 places to live in the United States largely for its health outcomes. Life expectancy at birth in the county is 85.3 years, more than six years longer than the national average. Additionally, at just 6.1%, the local poverty rate is less than half the 13.4% national poverty rate.”
