Arlington’s top schools continue to entice families in the DMV region along with the area’s high safety rating and pedestrian friendly design. Arlington is considered a very family-friendly place to live due to its parks, bike trails, museums, historic sites, and proximity to the capital. Though there are lots of condos and apartment buildings in Arlington, the farther you’re willing to live from the Metro, the more affordable single-family houses you’ll find.
