With nearly 5,400 followers on Instagram, Discover Arlington is one of the hottest social media presences in Arlington at the moment.
The account highlights local restaurants, events and other happenings around Arlington — an engaging introduction to the county for newcomers and a way to discover new places for even long-time Arlingtonians.
Two couple behind Discover Arlington is Blake Davenport and Leah Virbitsky. Having moved here two years ago, they may not be the longest-tenured local residents, but they do have an uncommon passion for all things Arlington.
On this week’s 26 Square Miles podcast, we asked Davenport and Virbitsky about building a social following, about Leah’s event organizing background and about Blake getting his start in the competitive real estate business.
