The armpit of Washington, D.C. AKA "Nova" (not to be confused with the local Northern Virginia Community College, which is also known colloquially by that name), this suburban area is known for its excessive, endless traffic, regardless of the time of day, and for its extremely high quantity of generic douchebags wearing brown flip-flops. There isn't really a cultural vibe associated with this area, as a lot of the population is transplants from other places who moved there for business reasons (as opposed to NYC or Boston, for example). Therefore, it is overpopulated and sucks ass. However, you can always grab a cup of coffee at the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks or the Starbucks.
Bob: Hey, look at that guy over there with brown flip-flops. He seems like a douche.
John: Yeah, I bet he's from Northern Virginia.

"We've got dudes in brown flip-flops, dudes in brown flip-flops- HOLY CRAP WHY ARE ALL THESE DUDES WEARIN' BROWN FLIP-FLOPS?????" -Remy in "The Arlington Rap," which talks about a specific city in Northern Virginia, but that particular part can be applied to the whole area.

Eric: There's nothing to do here, man...
Bob: Well, it's Northern Virginia, what do you expect?

Person stuck in traffic: OMG I HAVE LITERALLY MOVED 10 FEET IN THE LAST HALF HOUR, FUCK NORTHERN VIRGINIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

James: Hey man, you wanna go to the Starbucks?
Billy: Which one?
James: The one in Arligton.
Billy: Dude, there are like 15 there.
James: The one at Ballston.
Billy: You mean the one in the mall, or the one right outside the mall?
James: Gahhhhhh I hate Northern Virginia!

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.

I have lived here forever with the exception of D.C. Pretty cool place to live if your not in the extremely rich make you feel broke areas like Ashburn, Countryside, Cascades, Chantilly, these areas are packed with rich kids that will piss you off as is the same with Tyson’s Corner. Loudoun County period is by far the worst. But everything past that is pretty cool. Alexandria, Falls Church, Arlington, Baileys Crossroads, and Skyline ect ect. Are pretty cool places if you’re not in the Ghetto Immigrant populated areas like Culmore and parts of West Falls Church and lomans plaza falls church . There is allot of Gang bullshit here but it’s mainly 18thst and MS13 Bullshit. There are allot of GD'S as well. But the gang shit isn’t really anything to worry about in my opinion ive lived here my whole life and only gotten stabbed once. Yes there are fine women its just too bad the good looking ones live in Ashburn and are rich and will piss you off. Personally I like D.C. and Baltimore a lot more. But its home here to me. Plus there is ALOT of good ass weed here especially in the rich areas.
I live in Northern Virginia

Totally different from southern VA... Full of fake people who all only care about money. Teens are in cliques all they do is drink, smoke pot, do crack, have sex with one another sober and not. They think there life sucks when in reality it really doesn't. They just don't have goals and everything is given to them. Home of fake tans all year round. And don't really let newcomers in the cliques. I would know, i've lived here for a total of 9 yrs. (I lived other places this is by far the worst) Chicago(5yrs) was pretty good... Tennessee(3yrs) was pretty good to. But geez here it sucks.
northern virginia is filled with super rich parents who give there kids whatever they want when they want it. Also filled with teens who do whatever they want whenever they want.
