Centreville is an unincorporated city in Fairfax County. The population was 71,000 in 2010. This article also covers the nearby town of Clifton and its surrounding area.
There are numerous shopping centers built around the town center. The presence of Korean stores can be found in these shopping centers. Many stores are the hangouts of young Koreans. You can also find many Korean churches around the area.
Clifton is directly south-east of Centreville. While pretty much the only thing to do in Clifton's suburbs is to drive around and look at the pretty houses (which is actually pretty enjoyable), or go to one of the parks, Clifton itself is a pretty little town with a few restaurants. Pretty is the word to describe Clifton: pretty suburbs, with pretty houses on beautiful large lots, and the pretty suburbs surround a pretty little town with pretty buildings.
