Falls Church Homes for Sale
The Little City
Falls Church is an independent city in the stat state of Virginia. Falls Church has the lowest level of poverty of any independent city or county in the United States. Ranked #27 in the Best Places to Live in Virginia by Niche. With its homey vibe and simple strip of low-key shops and restaurants, downtown Falls Church is a bit of an anomaly in a Northern Virginia that’s busy reinventing itself. To the casual visitor, the town’s relatively low density and lack of glittering amenities might seem like a waste of prime space close to two Metro stations. But Falls Church residents say they’re generally happy with the town as it is.
Shopping and restaurants
Downtown Falls Church’s commercial sector doesn’t come across as being particularly impressive at first, but a closer inspection of the small strip of shops that lie just west of Washington Street reveals a number of locally-owned businesses with character: Brown’s Hardware, The Local Market produce store, and Dogwood Tavern, to name a few.
There’s also a range of ethnic eateries—Vietnamese, Japanese, Bolivian, Afghan, Thai, and Indian—plus a number of bars like Ireland’s Four Provinces and the Mad Fox Brewing Company that have a good dose of personality. To boot, the State Theater books a range of bands, and an old school bowling alley is located just off Broad Street. For those seeking a wider (and glitzier) range of offerings, Tyson’s Corner is only five miles away.
Small Town Feel
A little bit of Mayberry....
While much of Northern Virginia is dominated by Arlington and Fairfax counties, Falls Church stands alone, a small municipality that doesn’t belong to either county. The downtown area is roughly bounded by West Street to the northwest, Park Avenue to the northeast, Washington Street to the southeast, and a creek that runs southeast through Cavalier Trail Park.
