This week, we'll explore suburban communities and the stories behind them.

We dive in to the complex, ever-changing suburban communities of our region. We'll explore the military's role in shaping the 'burbs, and go inside the rapidly-growing Indian community in Loudoun County. Plus, we consider just how far you can get outside the city and still be considered part of the Washington area.
