10 Things We Love About Falls Church

Sample live music, global cuisine and indie shops in this close-knit town.

At just over 2 square miles, The City of Falls Church offers what many describe as the best of both worlds: small-town charm within easy commuting distance of a major international city. With its accessible bike paths (the Four Mile Run Trail starts here), independently owned small businesses, quirky cafes, ethnic restaurants, and highly educated locals, it’s got the vibe of a college town…minus the college. Here are just a few of the things that make The Little City and its surrounding areas a cool place to live and play.

1. Saturday Strolls at the Farmer’s Market 

The weekly farmers market that wraps around City Hall has everything from wild mushrooms to organic meats, Virginia wine pours, fresh seafood, hot doughnuts and live acoustic music. Open year-round, it swells to more than 50 vendors on summer Saturdays, when it also features fitness classes and cooking demos with local chefs.
