Neighborhood Spotlight: Let’s talk about Ballston

What makes Ballston a Special Neighborhood in Arlington?

The convenience of walkable urban living with access to Metro Rail and Bus service has drawn Arlingtonians to Ballston for decades.

Reinvented to meet the changing needs and desires of each generation, the Ballston neighborhood has a vibrant mix of residential, restaurants, retail, recreation, office and higher education. You can live, learn, work and play all within walking distance!

Some of the most exciting recent additions to the neighborhood include the expanding dining options at the indoor/outdoor food hall at Ballston Quarter, and D.C. favorite The Salt Line has also opened a new restaurant. Of course it’s not all about the food! With an active residential population, area gyms offer the perfect workouts to keep you fit. Bash Boxing recently opened with a 45-minute high-intensity workout. Or perhaps learning to ice skate is on your bucket list. MedStar Capitals Iceplex has classes for all ages.

Housing stock in Ballston keeps growing with new apartment and condominium buildings, many of which feature retail space at street level. As you travel a bit further from the core, townhomes and detached homes border the neighborhood offering more space with the same access to great amenities.

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
