It doesn't matter if it is your first move or your tenth finding out that you are relocating to another part of the country always brings up questions. Trying to find resources to help you with learning about the neighborhoods, commuting options, schools and what is there to do in the area can take hours of your time and sometimes leave you with more questions than answers.
For anyone who is looking to move to the Northern Virginia and DC area my on-line relocation guide is designed to give you an overview of what Northern Virginia has to offer and provide you with personal insight from a native of the area. I've been in your shoes having moved a number of times as a military spouse and know what it is like to be on the prowl for "insider" information on the area.
The Northern Virginia relocation guide is Cliffs Notes version of what you can find throughout my blog. Feel free to read the full version by clicking on any of the links that catch your attention.
