Falls Church

Welcome to Falls Church

While much of Northern Virginia is predominantly part of Arlington or Fairfax County, the little slice of land known as Falls Church stands alone. This small, independent city is quaint and quirky with a charming reputation. The area is well known for its array of beautiful homes, picturesque qualities, and safe Mom-and-Pop feel, though there are plenty of city-like conveniences to keep Falls Church sufficiently modern. Despite urban development happening much more slowly here than in other nearby areas, Falls Church is far from lacking in amenities and entertainment.
There are two Metro stations, a downtown center, and the area offers a healthy balance of restaurants, shops, parks, theaters, music venues, and historic sites to suit any lifestyle. Falls Church is just 10 miles outside of Washington D.C. and surrounded by some of Northern Virginia’s fastest-growing neighborhoods — Arlington to the east, Mclean to the north, and Vienna to the west — but it stands out for its unchanging, authentic small-town feel.
