Neighborhood Spotlight: Shirlington edition

What makes Shirlington a Special Neighborhood in Arlington

The charming sense of community truly makes Shirlington special.

While it has evolved over the years, it has always stayed true to its community. It is a vibrant, welcoming and diverse area that has everything you need. Whatever you are craving from food to entertainment, Shirlington has it. It’s a place where you can live, work, shop and play.

Whether you are attending a show at the Tony Award Winning Signature Theater, enjoying tapas with friends at Palette 22, or taking a sweat-filled workout at F45 Training, this is a neighborhood shared by all, including your four-legged family members. You can let your dogs run abound at Shirlington Dog Park, a 2-acre off-leash play area, and then head over to Dogma Bakery for a dog-friendly sweet treat. Top off a great day by treating yourself at either Le Village Marche or a massage at Massage Forever.

Conveniently located off of 395, accessibility is a major selling point to the neighborhood. Home to the city’s only indoor bus station, Shirlington is connected to major bus routes that take you throughout Arlington and into D.C.

It’s not just bus and car friendly, but also a great location for pedestrians, runners, and bike riders as it is right off the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail and Four Mile Run Trail. The location leads to a perfect blend of urban and suburban, allowing neighbors and visitors alike to share in the vibrancy of the neighborhood.

In the heart of Shirlington, you’ll find high-rise condominium living. As you step further slightly out of the Village, you’ll find a wide variety of townhomes, condominiums and single-family homes.
