What's it like living in Brandywine?
"I’ve lived in Brandywine nearly all my life, and I love it here. Most neighborhoods are nice and quiet. Depending on where you live you will most likely have to drive to where you have to go. The good thing is that gas prices are relatively low, absolutely not as high as California!"
"I've lived in Brandywine since 2004 in two different neighborhoods. When we first moved here, Brandywine was a small rural suburb with a lot of new construction. I've watched it grow into a vibrant thriving community outside of Washington DC. It's close enough to Capitol Hill and Tyson’s Corner, but far enough away to escape the high cost of the city. My children went to the schools where at that time it was still growing but now, I understand the schools are even better. The only complaint is the traffic, but this is the DMV, and like most places the earlier you leave out the less traffic you'll run into. Shopping is close enough and having our own Costco makes it even better. This is my 16th year living in Brandywine and the crime rate has been minimum. Most neighborhoods have crime watchers. All cities have ups and downs, but this one has served our family well." - Niche.com
