However, putting that aside, this article isn’t about this 1-bedroom garden-style condo in 22204. Rather, this article is written to focus on the reasons I love Arlington. There’s a lot to love about Arlington—more than will fit in this article, but here’s a few reasons I love living here:
- Arlington County has some of the best public schools in the national capital region, and in the country. Both Henry Elementary School and Jefferson Middle School are well regarded.
- From Ballston, through Clarendon and to Rosslyn, Arlington has a vibrant nightlife and a fun community of shops and restaurants.
- Arlington has a great plan. City planners have located high-rises in close proximity to metro stations and shops and restaurants to create a metropolitan walkable stretch from Ballston to Rosslyn. At the same time, Arlington has preserved quiet residential neighborhoods to get a great urban mix.
- Arlington has a number of highly desirable, quiet and exclusive, cul-de-sac, single-family-home neighborhoods like Country Club Hills and Williamsburg.
