Is this a good area to commute to NE DC? Is this a good place to live with 2 girls ages 12 and 14? They are both very involved in "all star" cheerleading as a sport. We are coming from a great place where schools are great and the community is also great. It was actually voted the best place to live in america.

I'm very nervous. We do ot have a choice to stay. So selecting the right schools, neighborhoods, and cheer squad is critical. Both of the girls are involve in soccer and cheerleading in school as well.

Hello new neighbor! This area is indeed a nice area in Fairfax County. I don't live too far from there and have several clients who enjoy it there too. You will be close to just about everything you'll need. Close to major roads, shopping, geographically accessible to anywhere you need to go. The girls will either end up in South Lakes HS or Herndon HS, depending on where you choose to live in Polo Fields. How did you end up picking Polo Fields and for what reasons? Do you already know when you will be moving? I'd highly recommend visiting both schools to see what the best fit would be for your children. if you want more info on housing, send me a DM and we can talk off line.

All the best!

NE DC is a long commute from Reston, though if you are near capitol hill or union station, not as much. I know someone who commutes from Reston to Crystal City and he says it regularly is about 1-1.5 hrs each way during rush hour; add in another 15-30 minutes for DC. I usually would recommend anyone working in DC to look inside the beltway or very close to a metro/VRE station. There are plenty of great schools in Arlington, Mclean, Falls, Church, and Annandale that have good schools with sports programs.
