Many of the buildings around the Metro station are linked not only by tree-lined streets above ground, but also by an extensive underground system of corridors and walkways, lined with shops, eateries, and services.

Crystal City has over 4,600 hotel rooms to accommodate visitors, with easy access to Washington, D.C. and Reagan National Airport. But more important to the thousands of people who live and work here, Crystal City is very convenient for everyday necessities as well. Pharmacies, banks, doctor and dentist's offices, a post office and supermarkets are all part of the amenities that residents can find close to home. The two Metrorail lines, Metrobus service, bike/pedestrian trails, and Capital Bikeshare make it an ideal location for commuters, too. A short connector trail leads to the 18.5-mile Mount Vernon Trail.

The Crystal City Water Park is one of several outdoor lunch spots, and regularly offers summer concerts both during lunch and evenings. The many restaurants in Crystal City provide a variety of cuisines and an active nightlife.
