Neighborhood Spotlight: Explore the hidden gem that is Arlington Heights

What makes Arlington Heights a special neighborhood in Arlington?

Arlington Heights is a hidden gem located just 3.5 miles from Washington and convenient to many neighborhoods throughout Arlington and Northern Virginia.

What many people don’t know is that Arlington Heights is on the National Register of Historic Places which contains 737 contributing buildings including the newly opened restaurant, Ruthie’s All-Day, located in a historic mid-century modern chocolate factory! The neighborhood has a storybook vibe of tree-lined streets with a wide variety of housing including single family homes, townhomes, apartments and condominiums.

Arlington Heights is also home to Thomas Jefferson Community & Fitness Center, a central recreation center for all Arlington residents with tennis courts, a soccer field, a diamond field and a playground (fun fact: location of the Arlington County Fair — the largest free event on the East Coast drawing over 84,000 people for this amazing annual event).

Adjacent to Thomas Jefferson Middle School and Community & Fitness Center, is the newly built net-zero energy elementary school, Alice W. Fleet. Named after an African American educator and trailblazer.
