Neighborhood Spotlight: Touring Fairlington

Fairlington has so much to offer and is one of Arlington’s best-kept secrets.

With immediate access to I-395 (and located adjacent to Shirlington), residents can easily get to downtown Washington, D.C. in minutes and many other key destinations throughout Northern Virginia and beyond. 

The neighborhood dates back to the 1700s when it was owned by John Carlyle and even George Washington. In the 1930s, FDR enacted a decree to have the land developed for defense workers and their families. What you see as Fairlington today (primarily townhouse-type condominium apartments) was built in the 1940s as the largest housing project financed during World War II. Fairlington is listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and on the Virginia Landmarks Register. 

A big draw to Fairlington is the access to many amazing neighborhood amenities, such as the Fairlington Community Centerwhich hosts a seasonal farmers market, and Fairlington Park featuring basketball courts, a fitness area and a playground. Fairlington is also a wonderful place for pets with a dedicated park (Utah Dog Park) and easy access to numerous trails including the famous Four-Mile Run Trail and the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail

Fairlington borders Alexandria and residents have easy access to the Bradlee Shopping Center which is anchored by a Fresh Market and it is just down the road from the Green Street Gardens of Virginia. Also, minutes away is Shirlington, a vibrant, welcoming, and diverse community that has everything you need whether craving food or entertainment. Check out my video and article on Shirlington here.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3­-7.

Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.

Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.

Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
