What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Shirlington Arlington

I like that it has a suburban feel in an urban environment. I like that my grocery store, pharmacy and salon are all within walking distance.

It is good for riding bikes and running. And there is also a fishing pond and park for kids. It is a very good neighborhood.

All About

Living in Arlington, VA

Arlington, Va. is bustling city-town that borders Washington D.C. It is the site of many historical monuments and memorials, yet it isn't a community stuck in the past. Residents enjoy a flourishing, modern environment that is just as lively as the adjacent District of Columbia. Whether you are bachelor or bachelorette who lives a fast-paced lifestyle or a parent who wants to plant roots in a friendly-community, Arlington's Shirlington apartments for rent are ideal.

Outdoor Recreation
There's no better place to enjoy the great outdoors than Virginia. The semi-Southern state has seasonable temperatures throughout the year, so come Saturday you'll be able to unwind from a long workweek and get a breath of fresh air. Hit the links at the local Pine Crest Golf Course, which is located right off the Little River Turnpike, east of the apartments for rent in Shilington. The par 35, 9-hole course offers nearly 2,462 yards of verdant fairways and putting greens. If you want a more fast-paced game, then head over to the Walter Reed Community Center Tennis Court, where you can play a few matches against one of your new neighbors, or just practice your serve.

Past Time
You will be able to experience America's past and get a feel for the country's history at the local Ball-Sellers House, the oldest house in Arlington County. Built by John Ball in 1750, this architecture relic is open for public visits from the beginning of April through October. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. If you are interested in the movers and shakers who once served America, check out the local monuments and memorials, such as the John F. Kennedy gravesite and the Theodore Roosevelt National Memorial, which can be reached from the apartments in Shirlington​ via the Curtis Memorial Parkway.

Transportation
Commuting to work will be quick and easy with the local Metro system, which goes right into the city center of Washington D.C. The nearest station to the Shirlington apartments for rent is Pentagon City, which is located right next to the national security office building of the same namesake. You will also have ample access to the highway - Interstate 395 and Interstate 66 are both a short drive away from your new abode. 

Shopping
All your retail needs can be satisfied at the local shopping district Pentagon Row, which has a vast array of stores that sell everything from the season's top fashion lines to home goods.
