Reston, Virginia, is an internationally-known planned community, with urban areas and green space. This smart planning is regularly reported on in the local papers, and has attracted huge companies to have their headquarters here, like Nextel and Google.
Reston's planned traffic patterns make it a great suburb of the Nation's Capital; it has four exits on the Dulles Toll Road. Reston is also a smart buy, because the new Silver Metro Line will have two stops in Reston, which will cause property values to skyrocket.
The Reston Town Center is at the heart of the area, which has a bustling night life and medium-to-high-end shops. With concerts in the warm months, and ice skating in the cold months, it is a great place to meet neighbors and take advantage of Northern Virginia's four seasons.
Because Reston is a planned community, it has many trails, bodies of water, preserved trees, and lakes, making it one of the most beautiful areas to live in Northern Virginia.
