Falls Church IS a small town, but don’t let that fool you, it is quite walkable. If you don't want to walk, and are looking to take public transit, your best bet is going to be the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, as other services (like the Washington Metro Subway) do not stop in Falls Church.
<p>Aside from the proximity of major cultural venues in Washington, D.C., Falls Church offers residents both historic and recreational and shopping facilities galore. If you are looking for a unique day of shopping checkout Eden Center, it's the largest Vietnamese shopping center on the East Coast. Eden Center has over 120 stores ranging from Bakeries, Cafes, Jewelry Stores, even Travel Agent services. If you are looking for an authentic Asian products experience, look no further then Eden.</p>
Pale Ale Steaks
<p>For traditional diners, Falls Church has two very good ones. The City Diner, a classic Greek restaurant, serves up one of the best breakfasts in town while Bentley's dates from 1974 and hasn't changed since it opened yet serves great food to people of all walks of life. There are a number of good Vietnamese places like Huong Viet and Present but you'll find many good Chinese, Afghan and other ethnic offerings as well. For meat and potatoes, there's a Morton's along with several other high-end chain type places or try the Sweetwater Tavern for their drunken rib-eye. The meat is soaked in pale ale and fantastic. Get settled into your Falls Church apartment and start exploring the local eateries.</p>
Redskin Fans Only Need Apply
<p>Get to know some locals at the Dogwood Tavern but if you don't like the Washington Redskins, don't show up on a game day. Ireland's Four Provinces is another good pub and the beer is always cold. Bangkok Blues is good for live music and their open mic night draws a crowd. Mark's Pub also has live music a few nights a week as does the Dogwood. Falls Church is just Southern enough that you'll find it easy to make new friends once settled into your apartment.</p>
