Living in Stafford

Couple enjoys time at a winery in StaffordStafford County is a dynamic and fast-growing suburban community.  In fact, from 2000 to 2010, Stafford’s population grew by nearly 40%!  The county is proud of its heritage and looks to the future with energy and enthusiasm.  

So, what’s driving all that growth?  Is it the close proximity to the Washington, DC metro area or Virginia’s capital in Richmond?  Or, is it the presence of a number of leading companies right here in Stafford?  Perhaps it’s the lower cost of living and affordable housing prices – especially compared to other Northern Virginia communities – including options for “rural living” and larger home sites, all just minutes away from Interstate 95.  Or, it may be the rich history, recreational, and cultural activities nearby or the convenience of reaching Virginia’s mountains or beaches within a drive of two hours or less.

Whatever the reason, Stafford offers something for everyone, and our well-educated residents seem to be satisfied with the accessibility, services, amenities, and other benefits our community provides.
