The Crossroads of Northern Virginia

Annandale is a census-designated place (CDP) in Fairfax County, Virginia. It is home to the oldest and largest branch of the Northern Virginia Community College system, and to one of the D.C. area’s Koreatowns. Downtown Annandale is also referred to as Koreatown as there were roughly 929 South Korean-owned businesses as of 2006 and 67 South Korean-owned restaurants as of July 1, 2010 operating according to the GIANT Directory for South Korean-owned and Korean-American businesses in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Most of these businesses cater primarily to South Korean expatriates, but some have a diverse clientele. County officials have sought to make Annandale more diverse by, in part, encouraging Korean businesses to include English in their signs.
