Neighborhood Spotlight: Touring Virginia Square

What makes Virginia Square a Special Neighborhood in Arlington?

We simply don’t talk about my neighborhood Virginia Square enough!

Virginia Square is located on the western end of the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor. It’s part of the Ballston-Virginia Square neighborhood and often swallowed up by the catchall name of Ballston. It’s a wonderful live, work, play neighborhood that features all the amenities of an urban oasis with quick access to downtown D.C. It has a variety of housing, beautiful parks, restaurants, retailers and gyms. And it’s home to the Arlington campus of George Mason University and its law school.

Virginia Square has one of the most vibrant restaurant scenes with a huge variety of cuisine. One of my favorite go-to places is El Pollo Rico, which has the best Peruvian rotisserie chicken in our region. This was once Virginia Square’s best kept secret until Anthony Bourdain covered it in an episode of No Reservations! Get the rice and beans and you won’t regret it.

Also in Virginia Square is Quincy Park, a four-acre hidden gem that has open green space, softball and baseball diamonds, tennis courts, a basketball court, playground, a sand volleyball court, and plenty of open green space for play, including reservable picnic shelters. I love walking my dog through the park and while I’m not that good, I enjoy shooting hoops. And, when it’s cold and playing outside isn’t in the cards, the Central Library is right there where you can find a good book and a quiet space to read.

As a major transportation hub connecting Northern Virginia to D.C., Virginia Square is truly a special neighborhood that has access to so much in Arlington and beyond. Contact me if you want to learn more about Virginia Square and North Arlington, and the surrounding areas!

Arlington and its neighbors have become more segregated in the last 10 years while fair housing legislation at the state level faces significant roadblocks.
