If you are looking for a family friendly community inside the beltway and close to DC, search no more. McLean, Virginia is the place for you.
McLean is located directly off the Capital Beltway I-495 & I-66 and conveniently located between 2 International Airports. It generally takes me less than 25 min to reach either Dulles or Regan National Airport when family visit, which is great for the traveler. The new Silver Line Metro has several stops located in McLean that gives you access to all the Metro Lines. Silver Line construction going west is in full-speed and will eventually give you access to Dulles Airport and beyond, projected date 2019.
Mclean has several parks for the families of all ages, Clemyjontri Park is probably the most elaborate kids park around. It offers a carousel of prancing steed, swings, slides, and pavilions for your picnic. If you are the more adventurous type and love the outdoors head over to Scott's Run or Great Falls Park and hit the Billy Goat Trail. Make sure you bring good hiking shoes, water, and a swimsuit, because you'll want to cool off in the Potomac river afterwards. While in Great Falls Park keep your eyes open for canoes and kayaks as the pass by in the chilly waters of the Potomac River.
If you are more interested in the great indoors head over to Tysons Corner Mall or directly across the street, Tysons Galleria. Every store you could possibly imagine for your shopping convenience is located just a few minutes from your home in McLean.
