Photo: Sidewalk in BallstonBallston is located on the Wilson Boulevard-Clarendon Boulevard corridor, which was named one of 10 "Great Streets" in the U.S. by the American Planning Association in 2008. Ballston-MU Metro station is a major transportation hub, connecting Metrobus and ART buses with Metrorail's Orange and Silver lines. Near the Metro station, tall office and residential buildings, hotels, restaurants, and sidewalks full of people create a "downtown" feel. Once you get just a few blocks from the main streets, the high-density development tapers off to residential neighborhoods with parks, schools, and single-family homes. The combination of office buildings, residences, restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and the Metro station create a lively mix that stays "alive after five."
