Another three-day weekend awaits.

Arlington is a great place to be if you want to catch the fireworks display in D.C., whether from up close or afar.

This week also marked the end of June, which brought some most-read stories of its own. They included roaming bears, more corporate headquarters relocating here and a man worried about an active shooter who tried to break into a middle school.

It’s been a busy month, and we hope you get a chance to relax and enjoy this Fourth of July.

Now, here are the most-read Arlington articles of the past week.

  1. Another accidental shooting, this time in Clarendon
  2. ACPD: Girl arrested for shoplifting escaped, bit officer after foot chase
  3. Local Oyster in Ballston appears to have closed, after another seafood spot ran aground
  4. Arlington is back to fully celebrating July 4 for the first time since 2019
