Kingstowne Entry

I lived in Kingtowne for almost 3 years, and it was one of the best experiences ever! It is a Planned Unit Development (PUD) with about 5300 homes total, 22 miles of walking/bike trails, 2 fitness centers, 2 pools, and so so much more! And although there are a lot homes in Kingstowne, they are situated in little sub divisions, and it truly feels like a community.

Within Kingstowne, there is shopping Center (Kingstowne Centre) that has 2 grocery stores, a Movie Theater, A LOT of restaurants, Shopping Stores such as World Market, Home Goods, TJ Maxx, and Ross to name a few, and a WALMART and Toys R Us! See, I told you that you really don't have to ever leave.

One of my favorite things to do was to walk to the Shopping Center, pick up somethins small from the grocery store, and then walk back. I felt like I was helping the environment by not driving, and getting some exercise.  It was less than a mile to the store, but it was more exercise than I was getting any other way.

When you do have to go to work, or into Washington DC, the commute is just up the road. You are about 10 miles south of Washington DC, and right down the road from Sprinfield, VA. There is easy access to I395 if you choose to drive, or if you prefer to have somebody else drive, there are plenty of buses, and 3 Metro Stations nearby (Springfield Metro ,  S. Van Dorn Metro and Eisenhower Metro). Springfield Metro  and Van Dorn run the blue line, and Eisenhower runs the Blue and Yellow Line)

Thanks! I love Kingstowne as well. It's a great place. I thought I would start a series of blogs of places where I have lived in Northern VA, and places where I really enjoy working. Next is Mason Neck (Lorton).  Have a great Columbus weekend, Renee

Whew, Renee, I just realized how long ago this was. Kinstowne sounds like a perfect little town and I hope you have sold some homes there recently.

I hope you can get out and write more. If you write it... eventually they will come :) Have an awesome Wednesday!
