Arlington is a mixing bowl of job opportunities, people, and fun! There is incredible cuisine from many countries, authentic and delicious! Downtown has many options such as Ballston, Clarendon, Court House, Rosslyn, and more for exquisite restaurants, shopping, and night life. There are lots of trees despite the urban atmosphere. The school system is top in the state. The communities are diverse and offer a short commute into Washington, D.C.!

Arlington, VA is mere minutes away from the nation's capital, Washington, DC. It's a safe neighborhood that offers as many small town comforts with the liveliness and culture of the big city. Arlington, VA boasts some of the most exciting night-life. Properties are beautiful, with the only downside being that homes can be pricey! However, it's well worth the extra expense.
I love Arlington! There is a lot to do in the area, rents are comparable to other places in the DC metro area, but you can stumble upon some good deals. I live within walking distance to a Walgreens, grocery store, and CVS (as well as some tasty eateries), and that's pretty normal for northern Arlington.
