Moving to McLean

Home to diplomats, politicians and ambassadors, McLean is one of the longest-established, best-known suburbs of Washington, D.C.

If you’re contemplating a move to McLean, let a local mover who knows the ropes make it easy for you. Victory Van has been moving people in and out of McLean and other Virginia cities for over half a century.


Living in McLean

In McLean, you’ll find wide, leafy avenues, beautiful old homes, and places like Hickory Hill, the former home of Ethel Kennedy, and Salona, home of Revolutionary War hero Harry Lighthorse Lee.

McLean’s Langley Park neighborhood is where the Central Intelligence Agency has its headquarters.

City Life

McLean’s closeness to Washington, D.C., makes it easy to take part in that city’s wealth of museums, theater, arts, live entertainment and dining options. McLean is also a day trip away from other major cities including:

  • Baltimore;
  • Annapolis;
  • Richmond;
  • Philadelphia.


Outdoor Life

Virginia is for lovers of the outdoors, and the McLean area is no exception. For hiking, camping, fishing, kayaking and boating, don’t miss

  • Great Falls State Park;
  • Shenandoah National Park;
  • the Blue Ridge Parkway.


Historical Notes

If you like some history with your outdoor adventures, you’ll want to visit the Booker T. Washington National Memorial Park in nearby Hardy, the Robert E. Lee memorial in next-door Arlington, and the Claude Moore Colonial Farm right in McLean.


Drink It In

Thomas Jefferson once predicted that Virginia would become a wine paradise, and he was proven right. Virginia is justly famous for its wines, but in recent years craft beers have emerged as a strong contender. Naturally, all that good beer and wine needs good food to go with it. The McLean area offers excellent restaurants of all types.
