What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Falls Church

is very white and i wish that there was more people in the community that accepted minorities and was more forgiving towards people who are not like them

The best neighborhood and great restaurants. I take the family to all the restaurants around here and the events that the city puts on

I like how everyone in the neighborhood feels like family. How everyone is very similar to one another, so we never have any problems

near public transit, parks, bike friendly, educated residents, large houses, pretty yards, quiet, activities to do.
