Neighborhood Spotlight: Let’s talk about Clarendon

What makes Clarendon a Special Neighborhood in Arlington?

Tucked in between Courthouse and Virginia Square, Clarendon is the perfect neighborhood that blends urban walkability with the suburban areas near it. Clarendon has a strong retail corridor with The Crossing Clarendon, Whole Foods Market, numerous shops and restaurants and a great mix of office tenants and residential homes — truly a special urban environment. 

Although well known for its nightlife, Clarendon also has a lively day life that includes great shopping, dining, parks and many events, such as Clarendon Day which features food vendors, arts and crafts and kids activities; the Armed Forces Cycling Classic; Music by the Metro; and the Arlington Festival of the Arts. A hidden neighborhood gem, Rocky Run Park, covers two-acres, with a multi-use oval field, a basketball court and playgrounds. 

Clarendon offers many different housing options, including apartments, condominiums, townhouses and single-family homes. “Some weekends, I literally don’t step foot into my car… I will do my grocery shopping, meet friends for dinner, pick up a last minute gift and go to a park with my dog, Spencer — all within walking distance. Living in Clarendon is truly a special thing,” says Alyssa Cannon.
