Neighborhood Spotlight: Let’s talk about Rosslyn

Just over the key bridge from Georgetown, Rosslyn is an urban environment with a mix of fortune 500 companies (such as Nestle, Deloitte and Rosetta Stone), great chef-driven restaurants and food halls, events and festivals and a summer/fall farmer’s market.

Formerly known as Ross Lynn, named after a local farm owned by William and Carolyn Ross during Virginia’s colonial period, Rosslyn went through a development boom in the 1960s which revitalized Rosslyn with several high-rise office buildings and hotels.

Although Rosslyn is known for its marquee high-rise buildings, it is home to the Marine Corps War Memorial (Iwo Jima) which is visited by over 1 million annually and the Netherlands Carillon — a set of 50 bells in a 12-story tower gifted by the Netherlands to the US during World War II. Visit the memorial in the spring and you’ll be delighted by thousands of tulips, a must-see!

Many live and work in Rosslyn for its wonderful convenience to Washington and public transportation-friendly access, including 14 Metrobus lines, a D.C. circulator that connects Rosslyn with Georgetown and Dupont Circle, and access to the metro’s blue, orange and silver lines at the Rosslyn Metro station. A little local secret, Rosslyn is also home to a daily bus service to Penn Station/Madison Square Garden in New York City. 

Rosslyn is also known for its amazing cycling and pedestrian trails connecting Northern Virginia to Washington, D.C. The famous Custis Trail travels along Interstate 66 through Rosslyn and can take you all the way through the Mount Vernon Trail to Alexandria and Mount Vernon, and the Potomac Heritage Trail. One of the most beautiful trails in the Washington, D.C. region.

The Custis Trail can also take you across the Francis Scott Key Bridge to the C&O Canal Towpath or the Capital Crescent Trail. It is very common to see the trails bustling before and after work with commuters. No wonder Arlington was named the “Fittest City in America” by American College of Sports Medicine (2021). 

Okay, we can’t finish this article without talking about the fabulous restaurants in Rosslyn!

Let’s start with Fabio Trabocchi’s new Sfoglina in Rosslyn, a menu deeply rooted in tradition. The Assembly located in the newly revitalized Rosslyn City Center is an incredible 29,000-square-foot food hall with multiple private dining rooms, an outdoor terrace and two full-service bars. There is much more with Continental Beer Garden, Compass Coffee, Inca Social, Salt and &pizza.
