A walkable, urban district, Crystal City-National Landing is minutes from the center of Washington, D.C., the Pentagon and attractions around the region. An urban neighborhood located in the southeastern corner of Arlington, Crystal City offers stunning views of D.C., great restaurants, cafes and specialty stores. Crystal City-National Landing blends the best of both city living and urban outdoors.

Prior to its current state, the land of Crystal City was devoted to industrial and commercial activities. In essence, it was an extension of the Potomac Rail Yard to the south in Alexandria. Under the supervision of Charles E. Smith, heavy development began in the 1960’s and the Crystal City landscape was transformed and repurposed as a mixed-use environment.

Crystal City-National Landing is different from other urban neighborhoods. Beneath its streets, Crystal City offers a space age shopping experience at the Crystal City Shops. Visitors and residents can dine, shop and get to the Metro without having to go above ground. This isn’t to say that there isn’t anything above ground either. There is a variety of restaurants and shops on the ground level as well.

Life in Crystal City-National Landing isn’t strictly commercial. Crystal City residents live in close proximity to the 18.6-mile Mt. Vernon Trail, which is ideal for those looking to get closer to the Potomac. Crystal City is a very active community to say the least, and there is something to do for everyone. From farmers markets to weekly 5Ks, Crystal City is a convivial community of good spirits and pleasant diversions.

Rt. 1 and the G.W. Parkway are easily accessible but having a car isn’t necessary in Crystal City. Crystal City itself is situated around the Crystal City Metro Station, which is also connected with the VRE. No need to take a cab to the airport here: Reagan Airport is less than two miles away. Crystal City is a commuter’s paradise.

Conveniently located minutes from D.C., Arlington provides the best of both worlds — an urban feel in some areas closer to the metro; and quiet neighborhoods with parks and amazing schools. Being so close to D.C. and still feeling close to nature is a part of what makes Arlington unique.

Berkshire Oakwood is a well-established community of single-family homes that sits less than 9 miles from Washington, D.C. and is within walking distance of the East Falls Metro Station, along with shops and restaurants. This quiet neighborhood features a unique mixture of architecture, ranging from vintage Tudor and Cape Cod to Colonial and Modern.

Berkshire Oakwood began its modern day residential development in the early 1930s, not long before East Falls Church broke away from Falls Church to become part of Arlington County. Many of the homes in the community were built in the 1930s and 1940s, with construction resuming again after the end of World War II when building materials again became plentiful. While some of the older homes have retained most of their original charm, others have been extensively remodeled from top to bottom. Regardless of when the homes were built, they all feature detailed craftsmanship. 

The East Falls Church Metro is right at the western edge, and the transit-oriented nature of the area has contributed to a continuing evolution. A number of streets are being improved to provide better walkability, with the goal of continued increase in restaurants, retail and a “boulevard” type of experience.

Lee Harrison Shopping Center is close by, allowing for easy access to Harris Teeter, hair and nail salons, Perfect Pointe, and Jhoon Rhee Martial Arts. Don’t want to cook dinner? Stop by the family-owned pie-tanza, where Italian food and gourmet wood-fired pizza are always available in a family friendly environment, or Sushi-Zen, also family-owned and voted Best Sushi Restaurant in Arlington. Looking for dessert? La Moo Creamery and Duck Donuts offer a sweet treat for everyone.

Lee Community Center is also within walking distance and families with younger kids can participate in the Cooperative Playgroup, while everyone is invited to Lee’s Arts Center. Outside of the community center you’ll find a lighted basketball court, children’s playground, baseball field, and butterfly garden.

Berkshire Oakwood provides easy access to multiple trails that run along the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail, which is perfect for residents who like to jog, walk or bike.

Westover Village is the commercial center for several neighborhoods we will tour today. Located along Washington Boulevard, between Patrick Henry Dr. and McKinley Street, the residential part of Westover is a pleasant combination of homes. 

Many of the original 1940s two  bedroom colonials have been expanded and renovated while a few have been replaced with new homes. Duplexes are located near Swanson Middle School, and garden apartments are sprinkled throughout the area. Some are market rate and some are used for APAH, Fisher House, Erdo and VHDA affordable housing. 

In the last few years, some of the buildings have been replaced with townhouses. Among the neighborhood amenities are Arlington County Library, W&OD biking and walking trail, and Westover Park and Playground. 

Just East of Westover lies Lacey Forest, bordered by the large Lacey Woods Park with acres of trees and the W&OD trail. The neighborhood originally had many summer cottages Washintonians used to escape the heat and enjoy the nearby Luna Park amusement venue. 

A number of those cottages were razed for new houses, and they join the many Colonial, Cape Cods, ramblers, and split levels that were built between the 1940s and 1960s. The first FHA insured house was located in Lacey Forest, and Eleanor Roosevelt personally visited the new homeowners. 

Moving north from Washington Boulevard are Wynnewood, Larchmont, and Tara. These areas were developed between the 1930s and 1960s, and many of the homes were custom built. They lend themselves to the expansions and renovations found throughout the area. Known for the tree canopy and rolling hills, the shady streets are ideal for walking and biking. Big Walnut park is at the northern edge of Tara and provides the best sledding hill in the area.

Years ago, a very wise woman persevered in the face of strong opposition to have medians built to slow traffic along Patrick Henry Drive. Today those medians are filled with tall trees, mature shrubbery and form a leafy entry to the Leeway Heights neighborhood. 

Many of the homes are “Broyhill” colonials, and the original tracks houses have been transformed with creative additions and renovations. Newer splits and bi-levels were built in the 1960s and several streets of summer cottages remain, although often expanded. The tucked away Parkhurst Park is nearby as is Cardinal Elementary School and the Sunday Farmer’s Market.

A desirable mix of housing, amenities, schools, and parks make Westover Village and its surrounding neighborhoods a very popular part of Arlington’s 22205 zip code.

Please reach out to me if you want to learn more about neighborhoods in Arlington and around the region.

Perched high along Wilson Boulevard all the way down to Rte 66 and Westover is the charming neighborhood of Dominion Hills.

Pop over to the Dominion Hills Center for food and shopping. The newest restaurant is the Meridian Pint where neighbors can meet in their outdoor patio for beer, burgers and game nights.

The Civic Association sponsors several family-oriented social activities, most of them held in Dominion Hills Park.

Powhatan Springs Skate Park: The beautifully renovated 17,000 square foot award-winning skate park is one of the most popular features of Powhatan Springs Park. It has a combination of old-school and street elements including two bowls, a snake zone and a street area.

Upton Hill Regional Park: Upton Hill Regional Park offers visitors a wooded oasis in the heart of the most densely populated area of Northern Virginia. A large outdoor waterpark complex is a sparkling attraction in this wooded, urban park.

Bon Air Park Rose Garden: Bon Air Park features a beautiful memorial rose garden that features more than 120 different varieties of roses and is often a chosen location for weddings. The Arlington Rose Foundation serves as partner to advise and to help promote planting. Enjoy the azalea, shade, sun and ornamental tree gardens. Master Gardeners of Arlington maintain sun and shade gardens to use as teaching tools for local gardeners. This expansive 24-acre park also includes playgrounds, picnic areas with charcoal grills and a path.

The hottest weeks of the year are often referred to as the “dog days” of summer — a time when it’s even too hot for dogs to be running around.

We know that’s not really the origin of the term, but we decided it was a great time to celebrate our devoted furry friends! A couple dates to note on your calendar are: DOGust on August 1st (the universal birthday for shelter dogs), and National Dog Day on August 26th. Of course you don’t really need a reason to give your pup extra attention or play time. In that spirit, we’ve put together a list of our favorite dog friendly places in Arlington. 

District DogsDistrict Dogs began as a dog walking business in 2014. Growing with each new client, within two years they gained a reputation as the go-to pet care company for warm, thoughtful and outstanding service.

James Hunter Dog ParkJames Hunter Park has a plaza terrace, open lawn, demonstration gardens, water feature and adjacent dog park that is open until 9 p.m.

Shirlington Dog ParkShirlington Dog Park was one of the first officially recognized off-leash dog exercise areas in the region. Being almost two acres in size, its narrow, quarter-mile length with an accessible trail, runs along an urban stream on the one side and warehouse building on the other. There is also a separate adjoining area for small dogs.

Four Mile Run ParkTake your pup for a stroll along this path surrounded by two acres of greenery that runs parallel to Four Mile Run stream. Four Mile Run Park received the Best New Environmental Sustainability Award from the Virginia Recreation and Park Society in 2018, the Virginia Governor’s Environmental excellence Award in 2018 and the Dave Pearson Watershed Excellence Award from the Virginia Lakes and Watershed Association in 2018.

Towers Dog ParkWith a large fenced in area that is a great size for bigger dogs to get some exercise and a separate small dog area this park offers something for everyone. Sit next to a large grassy field, the picnic area, or by the big tress that provide good shade during the summer month.

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.

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.

Fireworks displays are returning in full after two years of scaled-back celebrations.  

Watching the fireworks is one of the highlights of D.C.’s Fourth of July celebrations, and there are plenty of sites to view them from. You’ll find exceptional vantage points from rooftop bars, National Mall locations, Arlington and many other places throughout the District. Here are some of our favorites!

The National Mall 

Grab your picnic blanket and settle down on any patch of grass on the National Mall and you’ll have front row seats to the show! The Mall is the most popular place to watch the fireworks display with visitors staking out spots near the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and many other locales across D.C.’s most scenic space. The display gets underway just after 9 p.m. and will be launched from both sides of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. You will want to give yourself plenty of time to find a spot and familiarize yourself with access entry points, road closures and prohibited items. You can find helpful tips and more information from the National Park Service.

US Marine Corps War Memorial

Located on Arlington Ridge along the axis of the National Mall, the US Marine Corps War Memorial offers a panorama of the Lincoln memorial, Washington Monument, and Capitol Building. If you want to avoid the crowds on the mall and avoid downtown this is a great location!

Gravelly Point Park  

Located on the west bank of the Potomac in Arlington, Gravelly Point is just to the north of Reagan National Airport on the George Washington Parkway. Famous for watching airplanes take off and land, this national parkland is also a prime viewing spot for the capital fireworks. Seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis so make sure you get there early.  

Thompson Boat Center  

Looking for a view from the water? Head over to Thompson Boat center and rent kayaks and stand-up paddleboards (advance reservations are required). You can paddle over to a designated viewing spot and enjoy the fireworks as they light up the sky over D.C.’s most iconic monuments and reflect off the Potomac River.

Key Bridge  

Connecting Rosslyn and Georgetown, the Francis Scott Key Bridge offers spectacular views of the Potomac River and the District. Although you won’t find seating on the bridge, you can stroll over from the Rosslyn Metro station and enjoy a standing-room-only view of the fireworks.

There are a whole host of Independence Day celebrations throughout D.C., Northern Virginia, and Maryland for you to enjoy this Fourth of July!

Bordered to the north by The Pentagon, the west by the Army Navy Country Club, and to the south is the City of Alexandria, Arlington Ridge is a long-established community with hilly, winding streets and large canopy trees. 

A quiet community located in South Arlington, this community offers a distinctive residential character with architecturally diverse, single-family homes. 

Also known simply as “The Ridge”, this community is home to two historical points of interest: the Hume School (National Register of Historic Places), currently the site of the Arlington Country Historical Society and Museum, and Fort Scott (Historic District), currently the site of Fort Scott Park.

Arlington Ridge is an exceptionally attractive and convenient neighborhood in which to live.  Many, if not most residents were originally drawn to the area because in all of northern Virginia, it is the closest residential neighborhood to downtown Washington, D.C.– an oasis near a big city.  

For decades, Arlington Ridge has been known as a commuter neighborhood for its proximity to Washington, D.C., The Pentagon, and Reagan National Airport and its easy public transportation access with Metro and frequent bus lines, but with new developments and amenities it’s increasingly becoming more of a destination for tourists and regional residents.

Pentagon City alone has become a true live, work, play neighborhood with an estimated 8,200 residents, one of the world’s largest office buildings, more than 150 shops and restaurants, and Pentagon Row, which has 300,000 square feet of retail space and 502 residential units. 

And we can’t write an article about Arlington Ridge without talking about National Landing! With the arrival of our newest resident, Amazon, we will be seeing a lot of change and development as a result of $8 Billion in private investment in the pipeline to transform and grow National Landing.

According to NationalLanding.org (National Landing BID), there is expected to be more than 25,000 new jobs from Amazon alone by 2030, 7,800 new residential units, and an expansion of 400% in dining, shopping, and entertainment options. In addition to pedestrian and road improvements and more than 300 planned community outreach events.

 There is so much to see and experience in Arlington Ridge, reach out to me if you want to learn more about neighborhoods in Arlington and around the region!

Located in the northernmost part of Arlington, Dover Crystal is home to approximately 147 homes and a population of about 500 people.

Known for its unique curb appeal and wide array of home styles, this small tight-knit community offers a combination of affluence and mid-century design influences. You will find large traditional Colonials and an array of contemporary, modern houses and large multi-story treehouses.

Located close to the Potomac River, Dover Crystal offers plenty of parks and greenspace and miles of hiking and biking trails; including the Blue Jay Way, White Oak Way and the Potomac Heritage and Overlooks trails. Some of these trails even connect within Potomac Overlook Regional Park, which is just at the northern tip of the neighborhood.

One of the most unique characteristics Dover Crystal offers is the elevation changes within the neighborhood, with hilly and wooded terrain, lots of mature trees, very walkable streets and plenty of wildlife.

While Dover Crystal does not have its own Metro Station, the Ballston Metro on the Orange and Silver Lines are close by, and D.C. is just one stoplight away!
