It is centered on a Metro station, but the area immediately around the Metro doesn't have as much commercial development as neighboring Ballston or Clarendon. Still, Virginia Square does have a little bit of everything. It's a residential community, a 9-to-5 working center, and an educational and cultural hub.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or FDIC, is right across from the Virginia Square-GMU Metro station, and employs 500 people here. The Arlington campus of George Mason University is a block from the Metro station. A few blocks away from the Metro, we find residential neighborhoods, highlighted by single-family homes with grassy front yards. Quincy Park, the largest of four parks within walking distance of the Metro station, features picnic areas, a playground, and baseball fields, and is a favorite destination for brown-bag lunchers in the warm weather. The presence of Arlington Central Library and two nearby churches accentuate the small-town feel.

Virginia Square 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.
