Is Reston Right for You?
Reston Neighborhood: The main appeal of Reston is its proximity to Dulles Airport. There is a $5 shuttle from the Wiehle-Reston East metro stop, making this location an ideal place to stay for those heading in and out of Dulles. Reston, Virginia, is a suburb of Washington, DC now connected to the city by the newly opened silver metro line. This station is unique because for the next four years it will bridge the gap between arriving in Dulles International Airport and catching the metro. Currently, Reston lies at the end of the silver line (the Wiehle-Reston East stop), though there are plans to extend the line out to Washington Dulles International Airport in the coming years. Reston is an affluent suburb made up of both commuters and professionals who work at the many companies headquartered in and around Reston. While areas of Reston are walkable, a car is the preferable means of transportation—but beware, this area is incredibly congested on weekdays, so plan extra time for traffic for your trips.
