Learn more about Arlington
Located directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., Arlington County offers the perfect mix of urban and suburban living. The skyline is defined by high- rise commercial and condo buildings, major shopping areas and a vibrant nightlife. During the mid-90s Arlington neighborhoods located along the Metro's Orange Line experienced a bit of a renaissance in the form of a construction boom that lasted well into the 2000s. Older properties were demolished to make way for luxury townhomes and high-rise condominiums followed by more and more retail development and restaurants. Neighborhoods like Clarendon, Ballston and Virginia Square gained popularity with those wanting easy access to the Metro stations and a walkable lifestyle.
Just beyond the urban areas, Arlington transforms into quiet, charming suburban neighborhoods. Lyon Park, Ashton Heights and Cherrydale are some of the popular neighborhoods with a suburban feel yet still close the the Metro. The quintessential Arlington homes are big on charm but small on space. Constructed in the post-war era, they were designed for efficient living and built to last. Today many homeowners, love the charm and accessibility that Arlington offers yet demand homes with more square footage. That's why in many neighborhoods you will see gigantic newly constructed homes built for modern day living.
Arlington offers plenty of recreational opportunities including the W&OD trail system, parks, playgrounds, newly constructed children's spray parks, amphitheaters, high-school tracks and indoor and outdoor pools, public and private tennis courts and two private country clubs - Washington Golf and Army-Navy.
Arlington has and always will be one of the most popular places to live in Northern Virginia.
