Welcome to McLean, VA

A suburban paradise full of prestige and style

Cool summer breezes, horses grazing peacefully out on lush rolling hills, and tony estates set on sprawling properties. This is the beauty and serenity of McLean. Perhaps Virginia’s most prestigious town, McLean was the childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and today diplomats, government officials, members of Congress, and business executives call this stately community home. One of DC’s first suburbs, McLean was established in 1910 and carries the name of John McLean, a one-time publisher of the Washington Post. Beautifully restored colonials, opulent custom builds, and grand European-inspired chateaus, perched on the banks of the Potomac, set off the stunning natural beauty of McLean’s verdant backdrop. Just minutes from DC, McLean’s shady streets and majestic estates cultivate an elegant, tranquil atmosphere, while its strong sense of family makes this an ideal place to raise children.
McLean treats its residents to a discerning lineup of culinary landmarks. The scratch kitchen at North Italia impresses with sumptuous Italian cuisine, including fresh, handmade pastas and artisan pizzas, while the nuanced menu at American Prime delights with classic steakhouse fare, like smoked prime rib. Perfect for a company lunch or an intimate dinner for two, this upscale bistro provides a lovely flower garden patio for alfresco dining. The relaxed atmosphere and outstanding dishes at Rocco’s make this laid-back pizzeria a favorite among McLean families. As for shopping, McLean prefers to retain its quaint village feel rather than commercialize its pretty town center. Residents needn’t worry, however – Tysons Galleria, just minutes away, provides seriously upscale shopping and exclusive-to-market designers. A renowned destination for the world’s top brands, the Galleria boasts a distinctive collection of high-end shops, like Burberry, Chanel, and Neiman Marcus. An elegant retreat awaits at The Day Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, where guests relax with massages, facials, and therapies boasting natural ingredients, like seaweed, fresh berries, and Dead Sea salts, blended with the latest in spa innovations. Live, work, and dine at The Boro Tysons, a sleek walkable downtown experience just minutes from McLean’s leafy streets and equine serenity. 

Home to the renowned Fairfax County Public School System, McLean also offers residents access to some of the most prestigious private academies in the country, including the Potomac School, a college preparatory academy spanning kindergarten through high school, and The Madeira School, an all-girls boarding and day school for grades nine through 12.
