Photo: Farmers MarketColumbia Pike is a little different from most of Arlington's urban villages, in that it's not centered on a Metro station. The Pike is a linear thoroughfare stretching more than three miles across south Arlington, from Arlington Cemetery and Fort Myer in the East, all the way into Fairfax County at Arlington's western border. The corridor is home to more than a quarter of Arlington's population, as well as more than 500 businesses and 1.6 million square feet of commercial space.

Metrobus and ART team up to provide outstanding bus service along the Pike, and connections to Metrorail at Pentagon, Pentagon City, Ballston, Farragut West, Farragut North, and McPherson Square. The combined service, known as Pike Ride, has a rush hour frequency comparable to Metrorail, and frequent service all day.

A Sunday farmers' market offers fruits, veggies and other goodies from May to November. The annual Columbia Pike Blues Festival showcases local and national talent. And the Walter Reed Community & Senior Center and Park and the Arlington Mill Community & Senior Center provide public meeting and recreational space, as well as community activities for locals of all ages.
