Move to Fairfax County, right outside of the Nations Capital and you will find yourself right in the middle of it all. With our rich history dating back to the 1600's, our top notch school system, world-class shopping and access to the monuments and museums in DC you can always find something to do.
With Fairfax County's recognition in 2007 as one of the nation's top digital communities, recent ranking in the top 5 school systems in the US and Forbes naming the county #1 nation in median income it is no wonder that the residents are proud to call the area home.
With all of the history you can find throughout the county you can spend plenty of weekends exploring historic mansions, churches and towns. If the great outdoors is more your speed then you need over a year to hit every one of the 380 parks on 20,000 acres operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority.
World class entertainment hits Fairfax County every summer at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts the only performing arts park operated by the National Park Service. With its great lawn a picnic and a concert are a fantastic way to spend an evening. George Mason University Center for the Performing Arts and Little Theater of Alexandria are among just a few of the other local county venues. It goes without saying that just across the "border" in DC you will find the Kennedy Center and other theaters featuring touring productions of Broadway plays.

Whether it is a newer planned community, historic communites or a mid-century modern neighborhoods it is all available.
