Will be moving in the next couple of months from Connecticut to NOVA, and have 2 young children (under 3). Our budget is the $550K range and we are trying to decide which neighborhoods would be the most family friendly. We are currently choosing between Vienna, Falls Church, and certain sections of Arlington (or anything else close to these areas). Any advice would be much appreciated.

You should be able to find something in any of those neighborhood that will be considered Family Friendly. The key would be a field trip to see which you most prefer. Most areas here in Northern Virginia have web sites so you can get info on schools etc...

Deciding on where to live is driven largely by commute and THEN budget. Where will you be working?

Yep. The commute is very important. You will be miserable living here if you don't take that into consideration.

There are arguably many more family-friendly areas than not in Northern Viriginia. I definitely agree with those that employer location and budget would be the best starting points.
