Arlington Ridge Reviews

3 reviews
Have lived here for 20 years, moved in before having kids and thought we’d be here a few years then realized we never wanted to leave. The schools are great the neighbors are great You can walk to restaurants, bars and shopping and now Amazon is moving down the hill. The only downside is it’s become too popular and housing prices are going up fast.

I would live here for the rest of my life if I could. This area is well known for retired military veterans, and it is about two miles away from Fort Myer.
There is no crime in this area. The police petrol this area multiple times daily and everyone feels very safe.
