Arlington: Hundreds of Shops, Restaurants to Entice the Renter
Where to start?
Well, there’s the Ballston Common Mall, which is anchored by Macy’s and has more than 100 specialty stores and shops, plus a multiplex cinema with stadium seating. There’s CrystalCityShops, which boasts more than 150 stores, shops and eateries. Then you have Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, featuring more than 170 stores with some very high-end names like Armani Exchange and Nordstrom.
Adjacent to Pentagon City is Pentagon Row, with more than 45 restaurants and shops, and a seasonal skating rink. To get exhaustive, I’ll thrown in The Market Common at Clarendon, an apartment complex plunked down in a store-laden milieu, and The Village at Shirlington, which features a cinema, a few shops and a heck of a lot of restaurants.
Phew! That’s one mall-friendly town!
Best of all, with the exception of Shirlington, they’re all located near a WMATA Metrorail stop. But, fret not Shirlington shoppers, for you can always catch a bus at nearby Shirlington Bus Station, Arlington’s only enclosed public bus station. Apartment Showcase has tons of neighborhood information and apartment listings for your convenience is you are looking to move.
