Rick Saunders, lived in Reston for many years. Rick describes Reston as an impressive city and one of the nicest places to live in Northern Virginia. Reston is one of the country’s first planned communities with a most interesting history. The land was originally owned by Lord Fairfax in the 18th century.

Reston is named after Robert E Simon. Simon owned most of Reston in the 1960’s. Taking Simon’s initials RES and adding the word Town to them you get the name ResTown shortened to Reston. Reston is an Edge City and Reston Town Center is its pinnacle. We first begin with Reston’s commercial real estate presence because it provides the basis for the significant employment opportunities in Reston. Reston has become an alternative to numerous corporations locating their offices in Reston instead of the pricier alternatives in Washington D.C. Not only does the corporation save money but the amenities of Reston are truly amazing.

Reston Town Center alone is a multi-billion dollar development. The beauty of Reston Town Center and its unique, outdoor mall concept is outstanding! Yes, even in the winter! They thought of everything! What is a great way to compensate for the colder weather? That was easy, the developers of Reston Town Center attract customers by strategically placing an outdoor ice skating rink similar to Rockefeller Center in New York City. You can almost see Norman Rockwell taking notice of these Saturday Evening Post cover moments on any given wintery day. It is America at its best!

The Reston Town Center Restaurants are incredible. This is only a few but WOW, what a lineup! ClydesMorton’sMcCormick & Schmick’sPassion FishAmerican Tap RoomThe Melting PotIl Fornaio, and Jacksons. If that wasn’t enough there are the concerts! Reston is a designed masterpiece and this creativity is no better seen in Hidden Creek Country Club and Reston National Golf Course.

According to the Reston Association the Metrorail Silver Line Reston Station is scheduled to open later this year or early 2014. There are four lakes in Reston and properties located in the Reston Association have access to 15 outdoor pools and 49 tennis courts (eight are clay courts) summer camps, and special events. The variety of ways to play in Reston is endless. Is it any wonder why CNN Magazine ranked Reston as their No. 7 Best Places to Live in the United States?
