Arlington County is a county in the Commonwealth of Virginia often referred to simply as Arlington or Arlington, Virginia. The county is situated in “Northern Virginia” on the southwestern bank of the Potomac River directly across from the District of Columbia, of which it was once a part. Arlington is considered to be the second-largest principal city of the Washington DC Metropolitan area.
In a nutshell: Since the 1970s, Arlington, VA, has concentrated most of its development around Metro corridors and stations, transforming a once auto-centric landscape into one of most walkable, transit-rich communities in the nation.
Few places illustrate the power of land use and design to foster walking, bicycling, and taking transit as powerfully as Arlington, Virginia, or the ability to densify while maintaining or improving quality of life. Today, thanks to a proactive plan to accommodate future growth around transit stations, with a mix of uses and designs that facilitate walkable access to countless destinations, Arlington County offers people the ability to live car-free. As a result, people flock to Arlington to live, work and play, and its property values and rent premiums are evidence of its desirability.
