    Just got the word on a long-term TDY to Reston, VA and will be staying in Herndon. Can anyone give me any pointers on the area in terms of where to socialize, where not to, what to check out, which banks won't bat an eyelash when asking for lots of fresh one dollar bills, etc.

    Everyone in the area is CIA, so just watch out for black helicopters.

  4. Google "va open carry forum," I believe a few members are from Herndon.

  8. Depends on the type of socializing you want to do.

    There are a few watering holes in Reston and Herndon. For more opportunity, I recommend taking a trip to the Ballston and Clarendon sections of Arlington County.

    From there, DC is just across the way. Georgetown has a local dive or two that's always a good time.

    If you dislike sitting in traffic then I would advise staying off the roads between 6am to 10am and 1pm to 8pm.

    Yes, it's that bad.
  11. Herndon has its own police force and has some ares that have lots of illegals but not as bad as Sterling which is now called "sterling Park". Route 7 is horrible for traffic but the area is overall pretty good. It is right at the edge of Fairfax County and borders Loudoun.Count. I consider this area to be a high rent area. :whistling:

    Great bike trail, the W & OD.

    Try to live somewhere so you can commute against the traffic. Do not underestimate America's worst traffic.
