Best MONEY Places to Live in 2012!Best MONEY Places to Live in 2012!Money Magazine just published the Best Places to Live in 2012 and both Reston & Centreville Virginia made the top 20! Read on to see why Money Magazine picked these two delightful cities…Quoted from Money Magazine on Aug 20, 2012 9:04 AM EDT7. Reston, VATop 100 rank: 7
Reston may be a planned community, but don’t expect cookie-cutter homes here. Thanks to famed master planner Robert Simon, houses of all shapes and sizes sit next to one another.
Activities come in all stripes too, from an über-urban downtown to 55 miles of bike paths, 52 tennis courts, and 15 pools.
Thanks to Reston’s growing reputation as a technology hub near Washington Dulles International Airport, major firms have large offices here. Those who do commute to D.C. contend with traffic, but next year’s completion of the Washington Metro’s extension to Reston will help alleviate the pain.(Photo courtesy of the Reston Association)17. Centreville, VA
Top 100 rank: 17
Centreville strikes the right balance for those who want to escape big-city life without sacrificing big-city job opportunities. Though the commute to Washington, D.C., can be lengthy due to traffic, Centreville is within reasonable driving distance of both mountain and beach getaways (it’s even easier to get far away: Dulles International Airport is minutes down the road). That’s not to say there’s no such thing as local traffic too — Centreville’s Little League team, recent state champions, has been known to draw quite a crowd. –E.R.
