Living In Clarendon

At the Heart of Arlington

In many facets, Clarendon encapsulates the heart of Arlington.

On the one hand, it is geographically dead-set in the center of the North and the South, with its boundaries comprising the intersection between Arlington’s three most major roads: Arlington Boulevard, Washington Boulevard, and Wilson Boulevard. On the other hand, it is Arlington’s beating pulse of activity, with premier shopping, dining and nightlife options attracting by far the most foot traffic and vibrancy within the most densely populated area of Arlington.

Additionally, it is situated in the middle of the bustling commercial districts eastwards (Ballston) and westwards (Rosslyn), as well as in between Arlington’s most in-demand residential neighborhoods, Lyon Park (south) and Lyon Village (north).

So not only is Clarendon literally central; it is also Arlington’s center of action and excitement.
