Once my daughter goes away to college in the fall I will likely move to a less expensive area. This area just feels so safe, I have no problem leaving her here alone.

Surprisingly, Great Falls is one of the areas that isn't pedestrian friendly. I used to think it would be fun to park by the gazebo and then walk around oohing and ahhing at the mansions. But there aren't many sidewalks and even on the side roads the traffic zooms by a little too fast to be comfortable walking on the almost non-existant road shoulders. The old trees are magnificent but are so close to the road they make walking difficult. Sometimes a tree will cause a street to bend, so that visibility is obscured and walkers and cyclists feel vulnerable
