Lyon village is a great place to live because it it really close to Clarendon with all of the night life and restaurants, but you don't have to deal with all the people and noise. It is very safe - as a female I never feel insecure when walking around at night alone.

Super close to CVS, coffee shops, metro, and you can walk to Clarendon without living in it. Noise level can be high with Wilson Blvd and the fire and police stations. Overall, very convenient!
