When my children were younger they used to be embarrassed when I would say hello and start a conversation with strangers. In some ways it made sense since we always tell our children not to talk to strangers and then we do. It is part of my gregarious and curious nature to talk to people around me.
Fortunately my home in Belmont Bay in Prince William County is a neighborhood where gregarious is standard. No matter what time of day as you walk the waterfront paths, sit in the gazebo overlooking the water or wander through the streets in the town center, your neighbors will say "good day." In fact even the boaters who must slow down for the no wake zone in front of the marina will often wave and say "hi" too. There must be something in the air.
Belmont Bay attracts residents of all ages. As you walk through the community you will find young professionals, families with children and retirees. With a wide variety of housing including detached homes, townhouses and condominiums there is something for just about everyone. Add to the fact that the community provides easy access to commuting options both north and south of DC and you have a winner. The community provides easy access to all of the military installations in the area including Fort Belvoir, Quantico and the Pentagon. My neighbors include a representative from every branch of the service.
What makes Belmont Bay even more interesting is the reaction of even long time residents of Prince William County when they happen to stumble upon the community. If I had a dollar for every time I heard "I never knew this neighborhood was here" I could retire from real estate and live on a boat. The local press knows about the community as the Washington Business Journal, Washingtonian Magazine and the Washington Post have all recognized the neighborhood as one of the hidden gems on the Occoquan River.
If you are looking for a neighborhood where everyone stops and says "good day", that offers multiple options for housing and ease of access for commuting, then put Belmont Bay in Prince William County on your list of neighborhoods to see.
