I am a 24yo young professional relocating to Northern Virginia for a job in Manassas. I have been reading threads on this site to learn some more about the area, but I figured trying my own to get a better idea about commute times. My job is not far off route 66 in Manassas, but I'm more interested in living in areas closer to DC/better living for younger crowd. I'm trying to figure out what area and commute is most reasonable for me, so any info will help.

I'm wondering about commute times to Manassas from:
- Arlington (thinking Falls Church since Ballston and Clarendon will most likely be too much to handle)
- Reston
- Fairfax

I already understand that commutes in Northern Virginia can be a nightmare, but I'm hoping the reverse commute will help me.

I am not familiar with the area, so this forum has been a big help. I'm hoping to get a little more help so I appreciate anyone with some insight.

My husband commuted to Manassas from Vienna for 11 years. We were about 1 mile off 66 (Nutely Street exit). It took him about 35-40 minutes in the morning. Probably 40-45 in the evening, a bit slower on Friday evenings in summer or when there was an accident. If you are right off 66 in Manassas, it would be about 5 minutes less.

Reston would be out of your way and is family oriented. You might like Falls Church, it is pretty diverse and lots to do in the area.

I know a lot of young, single people who live in the Fairfax Corner area. And it's right on 66, so an easy hop to work.
