Living in Falls Church, VA

With a footprint of just 2.2 square miles, it's no wonder Falls Church's, nickname is "the Little City." Located off Route 66 about 7 miles from Washington, D.C., this city with the curious name may be small, but it's hugely appealing for those wishing to live near the nation's capital in a more peaceful, less-congested, small-town setting. Falls Church gets its name from The Falls Church, built in 1762, that still holds services and where George Washington once served as a vestryman.

Things to Do

What could be more charming than beginning the weekend with a leisurely stroll through the local farmers market? The Falls Church farmers market is unique in that it's held year-round every Saturday, and residents head to the City Hall parking lot to peruse wares from about 40 vendors and catch up with friends and neighbors. Cherry Hill Park, adjacent to the farmers market, is full of rich history and great scenery. Tourists visit to explore the park's Civil War-era farmhouse, but locals head to the park for the many special events, including a summer concert series.

Another popular spot is Eden Center, a.k.a. Little Saigon, where a bright red pagoda welcomes visitors to the region's largest gathering of Vietnamese restaurants and merchants. Whether enjoying authentic dishes or shopping for specialty Asian ingredients, stepping into Eden Center will envelop you in the sights, sounds, and smells of Vietnam. In addition to a diverse array of restaurants and bars, a favorite Falls Church nightspot is the circa-1936 State Theatre, a popular live music venue.
