Here is some great information on our Arlington neighborhoods, and sometimes other area neighborhoods, where there are great places and homes to live in – and delightful, fun times to be had!
ARLINGTON is an urban county of about 26 square miles, directly across the Potomac River from Washington, DC. The county’s relatively small geographic area contains a wonderful diversity of neighborhoods, from vibrant business districts with towering skyscrapers to quaint small-town feel residential neighborhoods. Shopping centers, lively nightlife, you almost name it – Arlington has a little bit of everything for everyone. Along with this urban diversity, is planned development centered around one of the best public transportation systems in the country. Arlington is a community where one can live, work, and play – even without the use of a car. (So, GO GREEN!)
Within this small geographic area are the thriving business centers of Crystal City, Rosslyn and Ballston, our local government center in Court House, the sought-after, lively Clarendon, Pentagon City with shopping that’s world-class, the extensive Lee Highway and Columbia Pike commercial corridors, and the cozy neighborhoods of Virginia Square, Westover and Shirlington. Each of these “urban villages” is well-served by public transportation and amenities for bicyclists and walkers, connecting the neighborhoods to each other and to the rest of the metropolitan area, and each village is a distinctive and multifaceted community with jobs, housing, and recreation all within a few blocks.
A lot of neighborhoods, a lot of choices – that’s ARLINGTON!
