It’s already known as a great place to live, but Arlington now has something else to brag about. A new study by a DC-based men’s grooming company just declared Arlington the nation’s most handsome city.

The company says it took into account how much men living in the area shelled out for their shaving needs, including personal-care products and services. Researchers broke it down into how much each man spends individually on grooming and on apparel.

While Scottsdale, Arizona men actually spent the

A plan to connect up Crystal City with Reagan National Airport could be even closer to reality. Called CC2DCA, the plan calls for a pedestrian bridge or tunnel to connect Crystal City to an airport parking garage.

If this happens, it could mean a five-minute walk to the airport. Not only would it be convenient for area residents and visitors, but it could also mean big news in terms of economic development and sustainability for the area.

According to a feasibility study by the Crystal City Business Improvement District, a new walkway would likely attract new development, new businesses and new residents. It could also potentially someday lead to high-speed rail service.

While the airport is only
