You're right but Middleburg is too sophisticated Hunt County to be Mayberry.

Purcellville is more like Mayberry so Winchester must be Mount Pilot. LOL. But none compare to Dupont/Georgetown.

I think the best balance is Reston Town Center.

...ive been do the dupont/georgetown area and i absolutely fell in love, however i am aware that until the metro eventually reaches IAD, that commute would be out of the question for me lol

where would you guys recommend i take a look at?? im early twenties, so possibly a yuppie type/college grad town within a 45 minute commute to the airport? (no more than 2 hours with traffic preferably)

any and all honest and open suggestions and opinions welcome PLEASE!!

thank you!!!
Did we meet? Continental metal, July 10th, DCA to SFO with a reserve crew due to the others going illegal? We talked about smisek, your plan to move to IAD from EWR and how disjointed the merger was...if so, thanks again for coming in for that trip

Wouldn't the best thing be to ask the other FAs who live around here?

Lightbulb Share condo?

I know a many younger workers who double and triple up in Ballston. The group of three lives in the nicest high rise condo that I've seen in a while. Crazy rent but they split it and it has three bedrooms. Maybe a solid option in order to live in the most coveted location.

Since your young you may want to look around Ashburn, its not far to the Reston Town Center a good night Life Area and then your only 35 - 40 min to head downtown, or less if you just drive to a metro and take the rail into the city for a safer night out.

How about a condo in the Fair Lakes area? Lots of restaurants and stores in the area and you are really close to Dulles.

FYI, there is a bus that goes from Rossyln in Arlington and L Enfant Plaza to Dulles Airport with minimal stops. It is called the 5A metrobus. Just google it for the schedule to see if it can work for you. It is meant for employees of the airport, but increasingly been used by passengers in the know.

It is still a pain for a daily commute, but it is an option.

However, it is a bit of a mountain city, so it does have a small-town vibe to it - much different than Georgetown, but a small city in its own right. There is a university (Shenandoah University) there, and is not a suburb full of only families. Might be worth checking out.
Winchester? Talk about Green Acreas. TS said she wanted a college/singles area. I would suggest Reston. Very close to Dulles and you get downtown fairly quickly once rush hour is over.
