Brambleton is turning 15 this week (September 24th)! In honor of the big occasion, we’ve compiled a list of the top 15 reasons why our residents love being part of our community, and what has made us so special for the last decade and a half. Here they are, in no particular order! #15YearsOfBram
15: A QUICK TRIP TO WASHINGTON, D.C.
We are just a short drive east into the nation’s capitol (and hub of political intrigue), where you can enjoy an adventure in a city with an amazing cultural and culinary scene.
14: LOCATED IN LOUDOUN COUNTY
If you’re looking for something a little more rural, explore our very own Loudoun County, where you can take a day trip to one of our popular vineyeards and wineries (including Breaux Vineyards and Bogati Winery) and have an adventure in the great outdoors — all in your own backyard!
13: BRAMBLETON TV!
Where else do residents have their own television station? We love connecting the Bram fam with regular features that highlight the goings-on of our community.
12: EASY TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS
Don’t feel like getting in the car for your next adventure? The Brambleton Commuter Lot offers service into Arlington and D.C., and we’re a hop away from the Silver Line Metro.
11: HIGHEST-QUALITY TECHNOLOGY
If you’re a super-fast TV and web aficionado, you’re in luck at Brambleton! Our residents enjoy Verizon FiOS television and internet service.
10: OUR COMMUNITY DIVERSITY
No matter who you are (or how old you are!), there’s something for everyone at Brambleton. Our diverse community was one of the first traits Stacey Rusch (featured in our Humans of Brambleton series) noticed, and it was a huge part in her realization that “this would be a great place to raise our daughter.”
9: OUR BRAMBLETON EVENTS
On a summer night, Brambleton is the place to be, thanks to our amazing series of concerts from fun local acts! Whether we’re ringing in our nation’s independence (with fireworks!) at our annual Red, White & BRAM festival or spotlighting the best in local live music with our summer concert series, you’re guaranteed to be entertained in our community.
8: OUR BEAUTIFUL BRAMBLETON GREEN SPACE
As resident Pamela Keegan puts it, “What I continue to appreciate most about Brambleton is the very thing that captured my attention the first time I visited here over 10 years ago: its serene landscape that not only attracts wildlife in the appropriate places, but places boundaries from the hustle and bustle of vehicular traffic.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
7: THE BRAMBLETON TOWN CENTER
On any given day, the Brambleton Town Center is the place to be. From the weekly Farmers’ Market to concerts to yoga in the park, there’s always something going on here. And our residents love the variety: “You’re so close to the movie theater, restaurants and Harris Teeter,” says our resident, Sarah, “It’s great!”
6: OUR INCREDIBLE WALKABILITY
Whether Brambletonians need to grab groceries at Harris Teeter or clear their minds by taking a walk on our 15 miles worth of nature paths, everything is an easy walk from home — and we love that!
5: THE SCHOOLS!
Brambleton families are part of Loudoun County Public Schools, one of the nation’s top districts for public education. We’ve got a number of first-rate elementary, middle and high schools, and are currently working on developing two new schools over the next few years.
4: BRAMBLETONIAN WELLNESS
Health and wellness go hand in hand with life at Brambleton. Through our healthy living initiatives — including our annual expo dedicated to healthy living, and our customizable online portal MyBramHealth that gives Brambletonians personalized health consultations from medical professionals across the country — residents can connect with the rest of their community while getting up and getting moving.
3: NEIGHBORHOOD CONNECTIONS
Living here is about more than just owning a home — it’s about building relationships with a fun, caring group of people. Residents Donna and Sarah say it best: “We have the best neighbors ever. Our kids are friends, we’re friends, we vacation together, it’s great.” We love featuring the people who make this community so special, and our regular blog series, “Humans of Brambleton,” features everyone from civil servants to fitness buffs to certified pilots!
2: THE PERFECT PLACE FOR FAMILIES
Ask any Brambletonian what they love here, and one of the first things they’ll mention is its family friendliness. If you have a young family, this is the perfect place to grow and connect with people just like you. Kids are everywhere, and we’ve always got something fun for them to do!
1: WE ARE A COMMUNITY UNLIKE ANYWHERE ELSE
Over 15 years, we’ve developed into a truly one-of-a-kind, special place. Our residents don’t just own homes here. They take part in a close-knit community that creates hilarious stories and unforgettable memories together. At Brambleton, “there’s things for kids, things for teenagers, things for old people like myself,” says resident Dan, “We have two sons living here in Brambleton also, and their families are only a couple blocks from us.” It’s truly difficult to find any other place quite like Brambleton.
