Northern Virgina or "NOVA" for short is an area in the due North and North Eastern part of Commonwealth of Virginia. This area is dominated by the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Prince William, and the city of Alexandria. In addition it contains many smaller cities which share common boarders/land with the larger counties.
In this region south and West of the Potomac River, also very far South of the Mason Dixon line, the most arrogant and staunch yuppies found in the Commonwealth if Virginia can be found. Even those considered "lower class" in this region live far better than your average person. In addition, while there are a high number of immigrants in this region, many of them prefer to be considered "Caucasian."
Northern Virginians love to play dual roles. First they claim to be "northern" which in fact they are just a step above Red Necks and one step below Hill Billies on the evolutionary chain.
Finally they all proclaim they are
from the District of Columbia or "D.C
If a Northern Virginian was dropped of on Martin Luther King Ave in SE Washington, or Suitland PKWY where D.C. and Prince Georges County Maryland boarder, said Virginian would pee his/her pants.
Most people from the "NOVA" area have never been beyond Georgetown in the District of Columbia (which ironically boarders Arlington County/Roslyn V.A.) and very few of them ever venture beyond their sheltered communities and ways of life.

Girl: "Uhmmm...I lived in like uhmmm Fairfax and my BFF is from Arlington."
Girl: "Is North East like the other part of Georgetown?"
Has some of the America's worst traffic jams.
He got stuck in the traffic in Northern Virginia for hours and hours.
the part of virginia that ignores the rest of virginia because the rest of virginia isnt as rich, and is therefore labled a home for "hicks." Also known as the blue part of a traditionally red state, mostly because of its diverse cultural background. This part of the state of virginia is comprised of many identical developments with cliched names such as "oak hill", "maple ridge", or "pine meadow." Of course , the irony behind the situation is that the oaks, maples, and pines have all been cut down.
guy1: hey im a douchebag
guy2: move to northern virginia.
guy1: im way ahead of you.
A detestable suburban backwater of America's lame, bland and culturally vacant capital. Filled with characterless subdivisions populated with characterless people and the poor immigrants that serve them, this place is so utterly conventional and uninteresting that it actually makes Westchester, Long Island, and Northern New Jersey look like they aren't cultural wastelands. NoVA doesn't suck simply because it lacks museums and "culture"--this is to be expected of any suburb. It sucks because the city it borders sucks. That city sucks because it is the center of government, and to be successful in government, one must be as uncontroversial (hence, boring, conventional) as possible. Any individual considering giving birth and raising children should realize that forcing them to grow up in NoVA will stunt them intellectually, emotionally, and aspirationally, for the rest of their lives.
Kid: "Why am I so bored that all I do all day is (smoke pot/drink/smoke cigarettes) and/or try to act like a (redneck or rap star)?
Wizened person: Because you live in Northern Virginia. Hope you at least get into college or something.
Home of Latino gangs such as MS-13 ,South side locos, and 18th Street. If you don't believe google it!
In Northern Virginia, where police estimate MS-13 gangs have over 2,500 members in Fairfax county. People think Northern virginia have no gangs but they do!!!! try living in an area where you got to watch your back from gang members who would chop off your hands and fingers also they have enemies such as South Side Locos, 18th street, and crips such sets as GD, UGC, and 33rd.
A region in the north of Virginia
consisting of Fairfax
, Prince William, Alexandria
, and Falls Church
. It is a largely suburban area. It is home to an unusually high proportion of immigrants
and minorities, particularly Asians
. Because most Northern Virginians either moved to the area recently or are descended from people who did, the region's culture is not primarily Southern as the rest of Virginia is, and it tends to vote liberal
more than the rest of the state. Its economy is heavily influenced by its proximity to Washington D.C.
, and many residents work in the government or technology. These industries have made Northern Virginia is very affluent, and as of 2009, 4 of the top 10 highest-income counties in the U.S. are in Northern Virginia. Lower education in Northern Virginia is some of the best in the country.
Some immature Northern Virginians condescend to Southern Virginians and whine about their tax dollars going to the south. Some immature Southern Virginians complain about how arrogant, bratty, and stupid they like to imagine Northe...
Northern Virginia is a vast wasteland of overpriced, cheaply build, homogenous real estate that is inhabited by "upper-crust of society" suburbanites with no sense of community or civic responsiblity to others. Generally the people who live here are rude, elitest, pampered, disconcerned, ineffectual and perfectly content with the aformentioned.
Welcome to Northern Virginia, please leave your soul at the Stafford County line.
Northern Virginia has some of the nations worst traffic jams. The area of Northern Virginia now legally extends from D.C. South to Spotsylvania County, Virginia. The only reason Spotsylvania and Stafford Counties are considered part of Northern Virginia is because of the vast commuters to D.C. (Stafford is not any better than Spotsylvania what so ever, in fact Stafford has less population then Spotsylvania. Stafford - 138,000 ; Spotsylvania 145,000) Anyways, There are over 2 million residents in the Northern Virginia region. There are many cultures and languages and also a decent music scene.
I live in Northern Virginia.
I'm moving to Northern Virginia.
Northern Virginia has thirty mile back ups.
Yes, Spotsylvania and Stafford Counties are now technically in Northern Virginia as of mid 2007. If you have a problem with it, move away.
