Tysons Corner is the anti-bedroom community. Its population actually swells during work hours when commuters file in for jobs at the many businesses headquartered there. But those who choose to reside in the sophisticated suburb reap its amenities 24/7.

The area also caters to expensive tastes as Northern Virginia's shopping mecca with Tysons Galleria and Fairfax Square. From Anne Fontaine's signature white shirts to Versace's bold cuts and colors, its high-end shops sell something for everyone with cash to burn.

Big retail chains have even found a way to make themselves part of the community. The local Crate & Barrel holds story readings for children, while Banana Republic hosts a cocktail mixer for shoppers.
