Rosslyn

Photo: Rosslyn Metro stationRosslyn is at the eastern end of 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. Traveling east on Metrorail, Rosslyn is the last stop before entering Washington, D.C., and this urban village really has an urban feel. Skyscrapers here are the tallest in Arlington, bested only by the Washington Monument across the river. Offices of nationally-known companies like Boeing make Rosslyn an important business destination, and the legions of suited employees on the streets at rush hour attest to the area's commercial vibrancy.

Rosslyn is also a key tourist destination, serving as a base for many visitors to the Washington, D.C. area. The presence of major hotel chains such as Marriott and Hyatt welcome and accommodate visitors to the area.

In addition to being Arlington's closest urban village to the District, Rosslyn itself offers many of the perks of city life. Sculpture by noteworthy artists are nestled among the towering buildings, and the Rosslyn Spectrum Theatre provides area fun-seekers with concerts, an annual independent film festival, and everything in between. Rosslyn also is home to a jazz festival each September.

Area bars and restaurants provide fun local alternatives to better-known hotspots across the river. But it's easy to get over to the District, via Metrorail, Metrobus, DC Circulator, Capital Bikeshare, or by walking across the Key Bridge to Georgetown. Apartment buildings like the Dakota condominiums and the Gallery at Rosslyn are two examples of urban living in Rosslyn.
