Stafford A Fastest Growing Suburb of Washington DC and Northern Virginia

on May 14th, 2015

In the April 2015 issue of Washingtonian Magazine, Micheal Gaynor looks to the future of the greater Washington DC area. He mentions:

To New Exurbanites, the traditional suburbs—like the central city before them—feel full… So they trek to once-distant areas: Stafford and Spotsylvania counties and Winchester in Virginia and Frederick County in Maryland. Over the coming years, an increasing number of people settling these exurbs will be millennials, like Lindsay Arnold, and the generation that follows.

He later explains that Stafford County is expecting the greatest amount of growth– over 140% between now and 2040. He cites examples like the upcoming Embrey Mill, convenience to get to the Marine base at Quantico, and new HOT lanes for commuting to DC as features making Stafford attractive. Add other great features, like proximity to Fredericksburg, and living in Stafford looks like a great investment for the future!
