Cherrydale — Spacious Estates Located in the Heart of Arlington

Cherrydale is a popular neighborhood in Arlington County VA

Cherrydale is a neighborhood in Northern Arlington, Virginia. It is centered on the intersection known as the Five Points consisting of Quincy Street, Military Road, and Old Dominion Road and boasts single family homes. Cherrydale Estates are primarily brick homes built between 1900-1930’s surrounded by large trees and quiet streets. At first glance you would think you were in a small town.

The Washington Monument is only 3.5 miles away and Georgetown is roughly 2 miles away.  Interstate 66 is minutes away providing quick commuting into Northern Virgina. Ballston Metro and Virginia Square Metro are also in very close proximately providing quick commuting.

Cherry orchards inspired Dorsey Donaldson to name the area “Cherrydale” in his 1893 application for a post office. Only a few remains of the original cherry orchards survive, all on private residential property.

Take a Look at the Parade of Lights in Old Town Alexandria Virginia

On the evening of December 1st 2012 Old Town Alexandria hosted the annual boat parade of lights. The event featured several pleasure boats decked out in festive lights making rounds in the Potomac. Just past the Torpedo Factory, Old Town features a strip right on the water similar to a board walk; this area attracts street performers, locals, tourists, amongst others. As seen in the photos below the strip provides a great view of the water, the distant Woodrow Wilson Bridge, and National Harbor.

Old Town Alexandria features a robust night life. Along King Street there are several restaurants which also serve as bars in the later hours. Union Street intersects King Street and serves as a pick up stop for the free trolley. Old Town Alexandria is serviced by the King Street metro station.
