Virginia Square: Serenity in the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor
Much quieter than some of its nearby neighbors, Virginia Square offers a bit of serenity in the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor. While some people may overlook Virginia Square, others find it offers just the right mix of a peaceful neighborhood that’s also close to what you need and want in the area.
Just minutes from Ballston and Clarendon, it’s easy to reach a number of dining and entertainment options in the region. Virginia Square isn’t far from Georgetown either, opening the door to an even greater variety of places to go and things to do in the District.
This helps makes Virginia Square the perfect option for those who want to live within easy reach of area sites and attractions, but also rejoice in a more peaceful atmosphere. On a smaller scale than some other Arlington neighborhoods, Virginia Square does have some restaurants and bars for locals to choose from.
The neighborhood is also home to Arlington’s Central Library, and there’s a Virginia Square-GMU Metro Station. Residents can easily hop on the Orange and Silver lines from it or from the Ballston-MU station.
The Arlington campus of George Mason University is also in the neighborhood, as is the Arlington Arts Center. At the same time, a lot of other things are within walking distance of the residences of Virginia Square.
Another advantage of Virginia Square is its access to Quincy Park. The park not only offers a large amount of green space but also some playground equipment for the younger crowd. In addition, you’ll find picnic space and baseball fields.
Almost completely made up of condos and apartments, you will find some townhomes in the neighborhood, but you won’t find any detached, single-family homes. Housing is often in high demand, thanks in part to the location and easy access to public transportation.
