Would like to know which apt complex and or TH subdivision is the best in terms of safety/ low crime/ amenities/ cost/ modern?
Would prefer TH subdivisions, but either will work.
THanks!

If you can afford to splurge a bit, the Stonebridge apts at the Potomac Town Center are really nice.

What is your rental budget / month and how many BRs/BAs?

Surprisingly there's a lot of new and nice apartments/condos in Woodbridge... but they're all in the 22191 zip code...

1 bed 1 bath. It's just me. I would like to stay under $1,300 if possible.

I have read before that to avoid 22191 but 22192 and 22193 are okay.

Why is that?

22191 is the least safest and desirable zip code in Woodbridge.

Springwoods at Lake Ridge appears to be a nice apartment complex but the commute to Falls Church will be at least an hour (the opening of the new HOT lanes on 95 will impact this - for good or bad? No one knows, yet).

If the work location is falls church, there are just as inexpensive apartments closer to falls church than woodbridge.

Check out The Metropolitan at Lorton Station, it's a really nice area, close to route 1, I-95, VRE, and Amtrak auto train (if that matters to you LOL). Also quite a few buses run from the VRE.

If your work location is in Falls Church, then living in Woodbridge/Lorton is a terrible idea

I didn't want to live north of Falls Church, because I want to avoid paying tolls everyday. I imagine it can get pricey.

Also, to be honest, the areas that are near Falls Church have a very low African-American population (like 4%). So I'm hesitant to move to those areas. Now I have lived all across the U.S., and even overseas...so I don't have a problem living next to anyone. But it's been my experience that people who live in an area with a low african-american percentage, tend to not want them around there.
