Neighborhood Spotlight: Virginia Square Tour | ARLnow

What makes Virginia Square a special neighborhood in Arlington?

We just don’t talk enough about my Virginia Square neighborhood!

Virginia Square is located at the western end of the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor. It is part of the Ballston-Virginia Square neighborhood and is often gobbled up by the catch-all name Ballston. It is a wonderful neighborhood to live, work and play that offers all the conveniences of an urban oasis with quick access to downtown DC. It offers a variety of accommodations, beautiful parks, restaurants, retailers and gymnasiums. And it is home to the Arlington campus of George Mason University and its law school.

Virginia Square has one of the fastest growing dining scenes with a wide variety of cuisines. One of my favorite places is El Pollo Rico, which has the best Peruvian rotisserie chicken in our area. It was once Virginia Square’s best kept secret until Anthony Bourdain covered it up in an episode of No Reservations! Get the rice and beans and you won’t regret it.

Also in Virginia Square is Quincy Park, a four-acre hidden gem that features open green space, softball and baseball diamonds, tennis courts, a basketball court, a playground, a volleyball court- ball on sand and plenty of open green space to play including reservable picnic shelters. I love walking my dog ​​in the park and although I’m not very good at it, I like to make hoops. And, when it’s cold and playing outside isn’t planned, the central library is where you can find a good book and a quiet space to read.

As a major transportation hub connecting Northern Virginia to DC, Virginia Square is truly a special neighborhood that has access to so much in Arlington and beyond. Contact me if you want to know more about Virginia Square and North Arlington, and the surrounding area!
