Stafford County enjoys beautiful farmettes sprinkled among suburbia. With borders of the Rappahannock River and Quantico Marine Base, Stafford County is the last bedroom community for Washington DC.

Key Features

Suburban Development in Scenic Setting: Suburban development and residential neighborhoods are prominent throughout Stafford, but the beauty of the countryside is not absent. There are still scenic places where one can retreat.

Commuting Proximity to Washington, D.C.: Stafford offers more affordable homes than Washington, D.C., but a manageable commute keeps jobs in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia feasible. The area has become a popular commuter community in recent years.

Rainy Day Family Fun

On a rainy day, I love to take my children to KD'z Kidz World, located off Jefferson Davis Highway near Stafford Hospital. The kids can play on bounce houses, inflatable slides, and obstacle courses until they are ready to nap!
