What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Potomac West Alexandria

I don't utilize the neighborhood as freely as others (the financially affluent). Can't afford the local businesses, etc.

We support local family owned businesses and have a community feel but are also close enough to travel into the nearest large city

The neighbors are great and many kids in the area. There are a few small parks or nature areas nearby.
