Stressed? Move to Arlington, VA

There are many reasons to move to Arlington, Virginia.  I detailed many of them almost 3 years ago in a fictional letter that I wrote to Paris Hilton encouraging her to move across the country.

No Stress in Arlington VANow, there's another reason: STRESS!


The Associated Press just released a report detailing the 20 most stressed and 20 least stressed counties in the United States with populations of over 25,000 people.  By stressed, their talking about economically stressed.


If you are currently living in California or Nevada, it's likely that your county is stressed.  Counties from these two states comprise 15 of the 20 most stressed counties.  The other counties are located in Michigan, New Mexico, and Illinois.


Most of the least stressed counties are in the MidWest.  However, the only East Coast county to make the cut is Arlington, Virginia ranking at #14 of the least stressed counties in America.

So leave the stress behind and consider a move to Arlington, Virginia or elsewhere in Northern Virginia region.  Buying a home here doesn't have to be stressful either, especially when you're working with a seasoned professional Northern Virginia real estate agent.

But what about Bristow?  We have the "best" commute from home to work (in DC) in the country!

Brian, when I saw the title, I thought you were talking about the Type-A kind of stress, which I imagine Arlington has its share of!  Cute post.
