Westover's main street, Washington Boulevard, truly is pedestrian friendly; there are benches and trees for shade, small businesses with unique and intriguing signs, and places to stop and talk or people-watch. The 45-mile-long Washington and Old Dominion Trail is just a few blocks from the shopping area, and the East Falls Church Metro Station is about a mile away, at Washington Boulevard and Sycamore Street. ART 53 and Metrobus 2A provide bus service along Washington Boulevard.

Beyond the shopping district, there are wide tree-lined streets with brick colonial, Victorian and semidetached duplexes. Westover Park is a place where grownups and kids can meet and socialize. The park frequently hosts the Arlington Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Division and other local kids’ teams. Swanson Middle School, built in 1939, was the first junior high school in Virginia. The school maintains expansive grounds and an adjacent park. Another important resource for residents of all ages is Westover Library.
