Moving to Newington Forest

It doesn't take much research to figure out that, if you're considering moving to Newington Farm, you've likely made an amazing choice. There's really not much to complain about in this census-designated place. You've got amazing apartments for rent, awesome schools and a quiet community to call home. On top of all of that, you're well within a short drive to the nation's capital. That means that if you want to break away from the quiet serenity of your one-bedroom apartment in Newington Forest, you can always go watch them argue in Congress. Twenty minutes in there should make you value your little corner half an hour away all the more.

When to Start Looking

Now. No, seriously. Right now. If you get off of the Internet tonight and say to yourself "I'll keep looking tomorrow", we'll just end up saying "We told you so." There aren't many rental homes and apartments to go around in this small community. This is undoubtedly due to its low crime rate, beautiful large homes and all of the amazing features, both man-made and natural, surrounding the area. Even though many people like to establish permanent residency here, you'll still be in good company since around 15% of all residents are renters.

There are a few things that everyone should consider before moving to Newington Forest. First off, if it's going to be necessary to drive around Washington, D.C. to get there, it's not a bad idea to aim for a July or August move date. It will be a bit warmer than the remainder of the year, but average daily high temperatures are still below 90 degrees, so it's not too terrible. In reality though, it's probably a good idea to move to the community as soon as a good place opens up. In case you weren't listening earlier, this place is in high demand!

What to Bring Along

You're going to need to be on point when trying to find a house to rent in Newington Forest. This is an incredibly peaceful and respected community, and there's no doubt that everyone, from tenants, landlords and homeowners, wants it to stay that way. Bring along references from prior landlords that gush about how great of a tenant you are. If the reference is less than appealing, be smart and leave it at home. Instead, bring along that awesome proof of income and credit check that you've probably repeatedly gone and looked at. This all will end up making you look great when you're trying to get into a great home. Think about it: you wouldn't want a deadbeat renting your property!

Newington Forest Areas

Newington Forest is definitely a smaller area relative to some nearby cities, like Alexandria, but it still has a population of nearly 12,500 residents. Obviously, there's a reason behind that. This stuff doesn't just happen by magic. The entire community, though not the most exciting place in the world, is chock full of great features. Take a look at the various neighborhoods before making your choice -- chances are you'll find something in your neighborhood to call your new favorite pastime, whether that be nature adventures or shopping excursions.

South Run Road: The areas around South Run Road are mostly residential, but there are also a few businesses throughout. Also, you'll be right next to South Run Stream Valley Park, and if you like getting involved in your business community, the Colombian Chamber of Commerce is also nearby.

Northern Pohick Road: Pohick Road runs all through Newington Forest, and it empties out north onto Highway 286. While it's also highly residential, you'll also get to hang out at Lake Mercer whenever you want.

East of Pohick Road: Anyone east of Pohick Road will love that they're next to Pohick Creek. Come on, everyone loves creeks. Oh, you don't? Okay, fine. Just head over to the Saratoga Shopping Center instead.

Living in Newington Forest

Seeing as Newington Forest is more of a community than a city, it's no wonder why there aren't really any commercial areas to speak of within it. Don't fret, though; this doesn't mean that the only benefit of living here is a safe community with nice homes. Sure, that's a big part of it, but the following perks also make it apparent why there aren't many homes to go around in Newington Forest.

Join the Masters

Okay, not the real Masters, but you can still play golf nearby your home (maybe Tiger will stop by! But probably not.). Laurel Hill Golf Club is extremely close. Don't worry, though; it's just far enough out that you shouldn't break your home's windows after spending all that time looking for an apartment to rent. Unless, of course, you've got an amazing backswing.

When you want to work out --and you should -- you could always work out at a gym, but you could also head over to Burke Lake. Here, you can hike, bike, paddle boat and play nine holes of golf. So get out there and meet your spiffy neighbors.

Get Your Retail Therapy On

Nearby West Springfield has all the shopping you could want, and a variety of other restaurants and shopping areas. That's right: you can enjoy the serenity of your home but still have access to everything.
