The Arlington County courts, police department, and administrative offices are all here. The private sector is also well represented by businesses large and small, and apartment buildings and condos complete the cityscape.

Courthouse 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. An escalator from the Court House Metro station leads to Courthouse Plaza, a pedestrian mall lined with shops and restaurants. The Arlington campus of Strayer University is right above the Metro station.

Just a few blocks from the Metro station, Courthouse becomes more village and less urban. Rocky Run Park and Key Elementary School are the focal points of the quiet residential communities on either side of Wilson and Clarendon Boulevards.
