What locals are saying

If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a place named for a heroic naval commander who went down with his ship after saving more than 150 passengers, then Herndon, Virginia is your sort of town. Named for Commander William Lewis Herndon, this town also served as a settlement for Northern soldiers returning to the land they’d conquered after the Civil War. 

Don’t be singing “Dixie” on arrival because some of Herndon’s 23,000+ residents can still trace their roots to those soldiers from the North

If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a place named for a heroic naval commander who went down with his ship after saving more than 150 passengers, then Herndon, Virginia is your sort of town. Named for Commander William Lewis Herndon, this town also served as a settlement for Northern soldiers returning to the land they’d conquered after the Civil War. 

Don’t be singing “Dixie” on arrival because some of Herndon’s 23,000+ residents can still trace their roots to those soldiers from the North. Only a ten-minute trip from Dulles International Airport, people will find the town one of the more convenient places to live in if they travel frequently. Named as the 34th Best Small Town in the United States by CNN Money in 2011, major employers like Verizon, AOL and Microsoft are all nearby.

Moving to Town

Before moving to Herndon, save up those funds. With Washington, D.C. so close by, prices are pretty high compared to some areas of the state. While you can find a range of corporate-owned apartment complexes, there are also rentals available from private owners. Whether luxury apartments or budget-friendly places are your style, Herndon has something for you. Expect to show proof of employment and submit to a credit check at most big complexes. This offers the exciting opportunity to show off your squeaky clean record. They might even give you a gold star.

Public transportation is consists of buses at this point, but if you can wait it out until 2017 (more like 2100 if it follows the usual pace of construction), the Metrorail’s Silver Line is scheduled to reach Herndon. If you’re driving to D.C. or the surrounding area for work or play, the Dulles Toll Road connects to I-495, which feeds into multiple options including I-66 and I-95.

Neighborhoods... Or Not 

Neighborhoods in Herndon are pretty much divided up by housing subdivision. When it comes to apartment rentals, units are located all throughout the town, though not so much in distinguishable neighborhoods.

Occupying yourself in Herndon

When living in rental apartments in Herndon, travel to Washington, D.C. for entertainment isn’t necessary. Plenty of ways exist for the town residents to entertain themselves. There’s the ominous-for-the-animals-named Frying Pan Farm Park, where visitors become educated in the workings of a 1920s-era farm that offers wagon rides and comes complete with a country store. History buffs should visit Herndon Train Depot, home to railroad memorabilia and information about good ole’ Commander Herndon. The town is also no stranger to celebrations and festivals, like the Labor Day Jazz Festival and the four-day Herndon Festival with games, fireworks, food and live entertainment among other things. Now that you have all this information, you can impress your new Herndon neighbors with area trivia.
