Five Virginia communities named “Best Places to Live”

Money magazine’s 2012 list of 100 best places to live (in the U.S., anyway) includes five from the Commonwealth — and one of them made the top 10.

Reston (#7): “Activities come in all stripes too, from an über-urban downtown to 55 miles of bike paths, 52 tennis courts, and 15 pools.”

Centreville (#17): “…strikes the right balance for those who want to escape big-city life without sacrificing big-city job opportunities.”

Ashburn (#30): “Ashburn has a high median income thanks to its abundance of well-paid technology jobs, but housing in the area is still relatively affordable.”

Arlington (#45): “…with the Pentagon and a wealth of other employment options located right in Arlington, a commute across the river isn’t always necessary.”

Dale City (#46): “The Americans in Wartime Museum, a $110 million project, is under construction. Its opening will bring additional jobs to the city, whose residents mostly commute to Washington, D.C.”
