Arlington is a very safe place to live and has many things to do! Being right outside of DC, you can enjoy your suburban life while hanging around downtown. The public schools are incredible and county projects are very well funded.

Arlington County is one of the best counties in America for the following reasons: proximity to the nation's capital, presence of a diverse* population, burgeoning jobs and real estate, great public schools, superb local attractions.

*Note: Arlington is diverse in ethnicity but not diverse at all in political opinions; it is unsurprisingly a Democratic/liberal stronghold.
Great elementary schools! I love how many dogs are in my neighborhood. It is pretty safe here. House prices are ridiculously expensive though.
