That said, this article isn’t about this house in Fairfax County. Instead, I want to focus on some of what I like about Springfield. There’s a lot to love about Springfield—more than will fit in this article, but here are a few reasons I love living here:

  • Springfield’s location near the Beltway means that residents are about a 20-minute drive from the many assets, amenities and cultural advantages of the metropolitan area.
  • Bowen McCauley Dance is a contemporary dance company and school based in Arlington. It’s one of the many touches of culture that I love about Arlington VA.
  • Springfield is a place where it’s easy to find a quiet curbed street. Walkers, joggers, and bikers will find ample trails to explore and enjoy.
  • Springfield offers a serious discount to buyers comparing looking at similar homes in Arlington, Mclean, and Alexandria. At the same time, Springfield has a much better commute than homes further out in Woodbridge or Chantilly for example.
