Joe's pizza and pasta is a great place to go for a great new york style pizza. Meanwhile, there is Pupatellas, which is a zagat rated and Washington Post recognized Neapolitan pizza place just two miles away. In addition to good italian food, you will find great sushi, thai, indian, lebanese, ethiopian, and classic american all in a few miles radius. The nightlife and bar-life really picks up in the Clarendon part of Arlington, which runs restaurant wide events such as restuarant-week and bar crawls on St. Patty's day. Usually the nightlife is humming every friday- sunday night in Clarendon with 20-30 somethings walking everywhere.

Arlington is a great area for young adults and families. The schools are excellent and there are numerous activities to do, such as visiting the national monuments, taking a walk in historical Georgetown, or trying out new restaurants.
The local businesses are very active and lively in the Arlington area. Due to the high real estate competition and high population density, businesses particularly in the northern part of Arlington tend to do very well. This high demand for good food and family friendly restaurants encourages the local businesses to create family friendly atmospheres. In addition, the small county radius makes accessing necessary businesses such as a laundromat or a good pizza place very convenient.
